Janesville School District summer school fee to increase
JANESVILLE--The fee to attend summer school in the Janesville School District has been $7 for many years. It will be $15 this year.
The Janesville School Board voted 8-0 Tuesday to approve the change.
Summer School Director Steve Huth said the new fee would do away with additional materials fees that have come with some courses, such as pottery, cooking and photography, although additional fees for courses such as golf and the summer high school musical would remain.
Summer school is expanding and changing, with the addition of new, more expensive and more academically rigorous curriculum at all the summer school sites, Huth said.
Huth said $15 amounts to 84 cents a day for the 18 days of summer school, but board member Peter Severson said he was concerned about the families for which even $7 was a hardship
