Jerome School Board Rejects Athlete Transportation Fees

In an effort to make up severe a budget shortfall in the Jerome School District, Superintendent Dale Layne proposed adding extra transportation fees for middle and high school sports activities.  But that idea was soundly rejected this week by the Jerome School Board.  Layne proposed extra fees to help pay transportation costs to help make up an $800,000 budget shortfall.  But members of the board said that would place an extra burden on the poorer families with children who wanted to participate in sports.  They also indicated that the families of student athletes already pay extra fees though fundraising and mandatory activity cards.  No formal vote was taken at the meeting but Superintendent Dale Layne indicated that it looked like his proposal was a dead issue.  The board members suggested for now that the extra transportation costs be taken from the maintenance and operations budget instead.
