The school is legally responsible to fund everything it offers. This is not an extra. It is a 6th period class that the teacher/coach gets paid for with a class section and an athletic stipend. The school district could elimiante 1 administrative job and free up $120,000 in the Huntington Beach Union High School District. The schools are not broke; don't buy into that union propaganda. Their are 5 school administrators at each school site. Their are countless district office adminitrators who never teach or see a student making $120,000 minimun. The superientendant gets $265,000 plus a car.

Yep.

I want to a very low income high school. Who played sports? Usually, it was the kids who were trying to have a safe place to be after school. They had nowhere else to go. They lived in gang infested areas, and that was all they had.

You have to be kidding me re: sports. CA is in serious financial trouble, in fact possibly the state with the worst financial deficit in the nation. The UC's have nearly double their tuition in a decade and the CAL STATE system may be in worse shape. And parents are paying any amount of money for athletics when the cost of a public uni in CA is beyond the reach of all except the most financially secure tells me that they have no sense of what is valuable.

With all of this, I can't believe that parents/students/administrators would STILL be attempting to maintain hs athletics at anywhere the levels that existed prior to this collapse. Just the insurance/transportation costs alone are a severe burden, and have any of you seen what it costs to light up even the smallest football field during a conference game, because after all, if you've got a football team, they have to play at night.

Somehow a lot of folks seemed to have missed the memo that it aint morning in America anymore. If you are wondering, as most high school students and their parents, how they're going to pay for college if they plan to go, and still come up with fees to play meaningless games, then maybe you should reconsider what public education has done for you.....

MY child was also charged for a cheer uniform. I dont have a problem paying for the uniform. But now the school wants to keep the uniform after i spent $400 for it. We will contact the ACLU for this. Now i not only have to pay for the uniform but now the school wants to keep it. Not right

Whoa, I didn't know a thing about this until my son just tried to do a fundraiser at school for a club and was told he would have to call it a donation. There goes the scholarship money he was going to raise for a college bound senior. And on top of this we were charged $100 last fall to be on the tennis team. What the heck?!

Hopefully, it will be spent on legal American citizens but I have my doubts.

I understand the majority of the comments on here but this law WAS NOT made to cause a hardship on the schools because it doesn't. The school receives NO money from a child for a sport or club, the boosters do. When a child can't afford to participate it is the boosters that cover the cost, not the school (know this does not, however, address ASB and camp which does go to the school) it was actually made to stop sports from exclude kids who were not financially able to pay to be able to play. In reality some of these sports, clubs, or groups can charge in excess of 4000.00 in my district alone. Basically because a family struggles to put food on the table their child should not be allowed to participate?
