The economic downturn has led one private elementary school in Azusa to lower its tuition costs for the upcoming school year.
The board of Light and Life Christian School recently made the decision to drop tuition rates from $4,700 to $3,700 for the academic year, officials said.
The school will also make available more need-based scholarships.
Board Chairman Hank C. Bode said the move is an effort to help area families afford the option of private education.
