The parents of ACS students petition against tuition increases for 2020/2021
Over the past years, the ACS Board of Trustees has been making the decision to increase the tuition on a yearly basis to keep up with the rising operational costs and inflation.
We , as parents , are committed to giving our children an opportunity for a quality education that will set them on a path to a successful future .We also chose ACS due to its high academic standards and its commitment to a well-rounded approach to education.
As the school board is making decisions for the coming school year, we would like to ask them to be mindful of the fact that parents are also burdened by the stagnant economic growth which has affected our businesses and our livelihoods. Not to mention the increase in taxes and the exponential increase in the cost of living.
Through signing this petition, we respectfully ask the Board of Trustees at ACS to utilize creativity in dealing with this prevailing situation, and to think of ways besides tuition increases to budget and plan for the coming scholastic year 2020/2021 and beyond. A consistent annual increase is unsustainable especially for those with multiple children attending your school.
Thanking you all for your cooperation .
