Board of Education agenda: school consolidation, fees

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The price of summer school is going up. The Board of Education has agreed to raise next year's tuition by $30, to $190.

Board members also asked the Department of Education to set a public hearing on the possible closure, of either Waialua or Haleiwa Elementary schools.

Now the DOE has 60 days to make its recommendation.

It's part of the state's consolidation plan... to streamline operations, and save money.
