California's school walkout was this past Monday and Butte County's largest public school district was not spared the empty classrooms. Data provided by the Chico Unified School District (CUSD) Wednesday show 1,347 student absences across its 23 campuses were unexcused. This translates to roughly 11% of the school community that is made up of 12,001 students as of the most recent data. According to CUSD's Assistant Superintendent of Business Services, Jaclyn Kruger, Monday's walkout will cost the school $101,025 at least.
