AFAIK schools aren't cutting any salaries. The savings by not running the building are minuscule compared to the overall budget, as @aygart has said many times based on his expertise. Schools can't cover cost based on tuition alone, they need to fundraise. A lot of fundraising has dried up, how are they supposed to cover the hole in budget?

Where do you think the extra cash is going? Is it a private school being run at a profit?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

The ones who are going through the most craziness are the parents for the most part. Itís not like the kids can sit in zoom by themselves. We need to sit with them so they are basically getting home schooled.
Imagine doing that while also trying to teach

I wonder what percentage of the schools actually did that. I haven't heard of that from all the teachers I know.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Why would they be doing that? Are they experiencing financial instability that is leading them to do this?

i guess they are but again they are not giving tuition breaks, their expenses are down, so something is not adding up

1. The amount you think expenses are down may be totally off. Considering possible expenses for conferences they may even be up.

2. How have their actual tuition receipts been? How has their fundraising been? Do they have an event slave which will now remain unused? Did they typically get rent from a camp which may not open? Any other income which may be down?

i can only speak for my school. They donít really rely on fundraisers much. They do a couple of small ones a year. Teachers are all teaching in zoom from home I donít see how that raises their expenses. Again they are not giving tuition discounts, they are giving more time to pay but you still have to pay in full

Fundraising can occur outside of events as well. As a practical matter they are unlikely to get anywhere near the full tuition paid. Their stance is more likely to filter out some who have a small blip of instability but may bounce back let quickly once this is over. I cannot speak for your school and others here have mentioned experiences that don't match with any school I know. I can only speak based on the schools I have seen.
