LOUISIANA’S TOP PERFORMING ONLINE CHARTER SCHOOL ELIMINATES BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING
Enrollment still available for students
University View Student Services Director Melissa Bentley is fielding all kinds of questions from parents and students at this time of year as the final seats in the 2300-student K-12 online charter school get filled, but one thing that parents don’t need to ask: How to meet the rising costs of back-to-school supplies and uniforms.
According to the annual Backpack Index compiled by Communities in Schools, the average classroom and extracurricular costs during the coming school year will total between $850 and $1900 for pencil boxes, study guides, sticky notes, binders and other back-to-school essentials.
“So many parents will remark that back-to-school shopping takes the fun out of going to the mall,” said Ms. Bentley. “An online school may restore that good feeling.” After all, the cost of school supplies has grown faster than the rate of inflation, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
