Personally, I charge the schools a flat fee for assigning.

I should clarify that the only assigning structures I've worked under at the high school level are ones where the "associations" are also the assigners (and in South Carolina all varsity games are assigned by the state office). So I was referring to the fact that a portion of my dues/registration is going to the assigner as compensation. And I know the local associations I have been a member of always charge the schools a booking fee - as they should. If schools don't want to pay to have officials booked, they should book them themselves.

Schools don't self-affiliate with conferences down here so there are no individual league assigners.

I have never written a check directly to a high school assigner as an assigning fee like I have at the college level. At the college level the assigners are most certainly collecting fees from their officials and their league or individual schools (not to mention the camp money).
