Edison levy passage would eliminate 'pay to participate'

Edison board of education members said if the May levy passes, they would eliminate "pay to participate" and re-evaluate elementary school enrollment to determine if more teachers are needed.

"Pay to participate" refers to fees families must fork over for their youngsters to partake in sports and other extra-curricular activities.

District treasurer Anne Arnold said the district has taken in an average of $75,000 to $80,000 a year from pay-to-participate fees.

"I always felt ours as a little high," board president Carla Rospert said, referring to Edison's pay-to-participate fees.
