Greece school board cancels senior trip to Disney

GREECE, NY (WROC) - Senior trips for Greece students to Disney World were cancelled by the school board Tuesday night.

In a letter to parents, school leaders say, "The decision was based on difficulties with student supervision in the parks and the district’s commitment to equity and access. At around $1,000 a person, an increasing number of families cannot justify the expense for the limited educational benefit."

"As you are aware, students had already begun fund-raising for the trip and deposits/payments were collected," officials add. "Within the next two weeks, we will send you a statement indicating how much money you have contributed and how much your child earned through fund-raising."
