BOOK FEES DOUBLE FOR RCS ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

(Richmond, IN)--Parents of students in the Richmond Community School system are dealing with a huge jump in book fees.  In some cases, those fees are doubling from what they were for the last school year.  Kindergartners will see their fees jump from $77 last year to $157 for the coming school year.  The jump for first-graders is even bigger – from $85 to $172.  Elementary increases are more dramatic than those at the middle and high school levels.  The reason for the increase is a change in reading curriculum that was approved this week by the RCS Board.
