Members of the Boulder High School senior class have the option of purchasing a parking pass for $50, which allows them to park in the lot adjacent to the school but doesn’t necessarily guarantee them a parking spot.
The Daily Camera reported, Sunday, that students and parents have complained that the number of parking spots in the lot may be less than the number of permits sold to the seniors, whose class consists of about 450 students. Students said the lot fills up early, and nearby parking costs $90.
The Camera noted, “Lafayette’s Centaurus High, which has a big lot and typically has open spaces, charges $30 for a permit … Fairview High’s permit, for seniors only, is $50. Louisville’s Monarch High charges seniors $50 and juniors $30.”
Those prices seem relatively inexpensive compared to the $250 that juniors and seniors in Southbury, Connecticut pay to park.
In Old Bridge, New Jersey, a school board candidate told the population that, if elected, he’ll seek to eliminate the $100 parking fee.
