Hello Betty and thanks for your post.
Thanks to a landmark case that will be settled this month between the State of California and the ACLU, schools will no longer be allowed to charge any fees for most supplies, uniforms and/or extras. As a result, students will find most fees disappearing in the next year.
Unfortunately, the loss of these fees will also likely result in limited services in the future and the probable elimination of most extra curricular activities, field trips and enrichment programs. What the additional loss of funds may also mean is redistricting for many communities, and that may create even greater concerns in the long run--we'll have to see.
In the meantime, these changes make my campaign to raise $100,000 for public schools even more critical than ever before! If you are planning to buy or sell a home in the near future, our agents are pledging to donate $1,000 from the commission for each home sale to the local public schools. Our schools are struggling and we're planning to help in any way that we can. Please help us improve schools in California. Call me if I can be of any help in your home purchase.
