HI, I’m KPBS reporter Kyla Calvert. Public schools across San Diego County ask parents to pay for things ranging from padlocks and gym clothes to bus trips to and from sporting events. The American Civil Liberties Unions says these fees violate the state’s constitution and is calling on schools to refund parents who have paid them. We want to know what your child’s public education will cost you this fall. Fill out the form on this page to let us know what your school is asking you to pay this year. If you’re comfortable talking to a reporter, be sure to include a phone number or email where you can be reached. I’ll be reporting what I learn on KPBS Radio.
