A new parking policy is in place at Southern Door High School and students are giving mixed reactions.
Effective this school year, students who park at the school must purchase a parking permit for either $20 per semester or $30 for the entire year.
Some are okay with the change but others, like junior Maria Mielke are not.
That's sophomore Ian Carpenter and junior Kolby Woldt who say they understand why the new policy is in place.
Senior Clara Samuels says the permits are not a bad thing but the school should have told students a year in advance rather than just bluntly saying "here, this is what you have to pay."
As for why the district made the change, Dean of Students Nicholas Brylla says it was simply a matter of trying to balance the budget without affecting students' education.
"When it comes time to choose where you're going to make cuts or generate revenue, our first choice is always to try to avoid things that are going to have a direct impact on student learning," says Brylla.
Brylla adds that the policy will be a learning process not only for students but for teachers and staff as well.
He says about 150 students use parking spaces at the school.
