Enrollment still available for students
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.
“Our staff is here to underscore that every enrolled student will be educated. Our team approach between students, staff, and parents is based on a shared responsibility to step up to the plate to succeed,” said Dr. Luce.
Rather than shopping, Ms. Bentley said the average University View family Is busy receiving their computer for the year, registering their online connection with the school and reviewing their curriculums.
“Come join us!” she said. “We put the fun back in learning with a typical K-12 experience delivered in the comfort of your home!”
