The summer school program that is set to kick off at Washington State University in the fall could cost students a lot more than their first year, according to a new study.
In an article published by The Seattle Times on Monday, students at Washington’s Central High School, which is the first of its kind in the state, are told they can expect to spend $3,300 for their first three years, which could come out to be $23,800 for the program.
The cost of the program is higher than the cost of attending a summer school in California, which includes a stipend of $6,400 per student, said Mark Wessel, who leads the program at Washington.
Washington State’s Central Summer School program was designed to offer students an affordable alternative to a traditional summer school experience.
But some students have questioned the program’s cost, and others have been unhappy about how the state has structured the program, which was announced last fall.
The Washington State Board of Education will vote on the plan to approve the $3.5 million budget in the coming weeks.
A public hearing will be held on Monday and Tuesday to determine the final budget.
The plan includes a variety of new programs, including:Included in the new spending are an increase in fees for students to cover costs related to student transportation and housing, as well as an additional $1,200 to cover the cost for students who do not have an interpreter.
In addition, the state will also increase its contribution toward the cost, from $2.2 million to $3 million, to help fund the program for students attending Washington schools.
Wessel said that $2 million could cover for a student’s summer school expenses of $7,600 to $9,000 per year.
The state has a $2,300 per student stipend to cover all costs associated with the program as well.
The stipend is calculated based on the student’s parents’ incomes.
The new cost for the students is more than double the amount the program costs in California.
California’s summer schools are a cost-free, state-funded program that students pay for themselves.
Students pay $2 per day for transportation to and from school and another $2 for transportation between classes.
In California, students have to pay for a $30 a day meal, a $5 fee for their transportation to school, $1.25 for parking and an additional fee for transportation from school to campus.
