So summer school registration is way down. One of my classes was canceled (only one student) and the other only has six (it was capped at 20).
Not surprisingly, I love the small class. Already. But, when enrollment in a summer school class is below 16, we're paid on a scale. With six students, I'll earn around $800. Here's the problem. I drive probably 70 miles round trip per day. That's a tank of gas per week, which is approximately $60. Factor in tax and the chunk of money Louisiana Teacher's Retirement will take and I don't know if it's worth it financially.
Really, it's not a dilemma because today by five is the last day to add and I didn't warn my students. If I back out now, they wouldn't have time to add another class in the place of this one.
