St. Jane Frances To Close Next Year

janefrancesThe No BS Zone is reporting that St. Jane Frances School in Pasadena will be closing it’s doors after school closes this year. The No BS Zone is following up on the school that has been a fixture in the Rivera Beach community since 1948.

Of course this will cause quite a problem for the county Elementary and Middle schools with an influx of several hundred new students. It is especially troublesome since County Superintendent Kevin Maxwell has threatened to reduce staff and increase class size due to budget restrictions. With tuition at $4700, it is unlikely that many of these students wodul enroll in some of the area private schools where tuitions regularly exceed $15,000 per year.
