Education Foundation Proposes Summer School

The Santa Barbara Education Foundation has proposed to run a summer school program at district schools for district credit. But the board had some reservations. President Monique Limon backed union chief Layne Wheeler who said that district staff should get first crack at teaching the courses. She, along with Pedro Paz, also said they’d be unlikely to back a program that is not accessible to all students as the current proposal would waive tuition for students who qualify for free or reduced meals, but set a single fee for everyone else.
