Re: Chaperone Cost for Trip.
I charge less. The reason is I don't have chaperones contributing to the performance cost, and I don't charge chaperones for the bus ride. Hotel, meals, activities they pay for, but I've been thinking about having kids cover their tickets to Six Flags or whatever we're doing.
I realize times have changed since I retired - I figured out how many chaperones I needed incl directors or other faculty - and I figured this cost into the student's cost. My chaperones traveled for free and were selected by me. Now, if a parent wanted to go along but not chosen by me, they paid the full price.
