West Ada puts class accounts on hold, temporarily

The state’s largest school district has put student class accounts on hold, at least for the time being.

The West Ada School District wants to make sure the accounts comply with a recent court ruling banning student fees, the Meridian Press reported Friday.

The district wants to calculate how much of the money came from class dues and how much came from fundraisers, district spokesman Eric Exline told the Meridian Press.

The district stopped collecting class dues this year, in the wake of a November court ruling that said student fees violated the state Constitution.

The class accounts cover events such as homecoming and the prom, the Meridian Press reported.
