Santa Cruz charging parents for kids' vacations.
Original post made by Parent, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Mar 9, 2007
According to channel 2 today, Santa Cruz schools are charging their students' $35 a day they are out of school on vacation during school time. This is because they don't get funding from the state on those days. Now, I know we have just had ski week and very few of us actually went skiing, but we do take our kids out of school for vacation reasons. Would we here in PAUSD think that this is a good idea for increasing funding here or would we all rethink our family vacations if we were charged for them?
