Family signed combined tuition and "fundraising obligations" contract with a private school in NYC, in September, and moved out of state the following summer. The school's position is that the agreement the family signed clearly listed a breakdown of quasi-charges, totaling $430 , and any shortfall of the fundraising targets for each student must be paid directly to the school. The school is set up as a non-profit.
Is the small claim filed by the school still valid despite the move out of state?
Is it okay for a school to require check or cash payments to cover the "shortfall"? If not, can you help me find a statute or regulation to back that up?
