Dear Ygnacio Valley High School Administration Stephen Brady Rianne Pfaltzgraff, and Efa Huckaby: My uniform complaint is 6 fees you are charging students.
They are:

1. fees for the Health Academy Program called SLC or HOSA
Ygnacio Valley High School

HEALTH ACADEMY–What are you going to do with your life? Join Health Academy and find out! Become a firefighter, radiologist, athletic trainer, nurse, doctor, veterinarian, dental hygienist, surgeon or more! The Health Academy will show you pathways to a great career in health care. Stop by 408 or 805 for an application now!

2. sports fees and transportation fees (MDUSD Transportation Fee) – students are told they must make their “donation” before they can play and the amount is a fee because if they do not pay, they cannot play.

There is a specific amount that must be paid.

3. caps and gowns – students are told to make payment to a third party but it is the district responsibility to provide the caops and gowns per the California Dept of Education memo
