SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. – Desperate to obtain every penny of state funding, the school district is asking parents to pay $36.13 for each day their kids miss school. The 2,722-student Scotts Valley Unified School District said absences cost the district $223,500 in state money last year. Parents are now being asked to donate the amount it loses every time a student is absent for a reason other than illness. State funding is based on “average daily attendance.” last_img
