Photo Prerequisite

Our school does not have a prerequisite for photo. We have three levels of
photography including a senior independent study. Currently enrollments are
approximately 160 students, seven periods a day (wow --- no "4 block"
either!). The intro is a semester long, advanced photo II & III are year
long. The only advantage to a pre-requisite would be to reduce enrollments!
Sometimes, that would almost be nice...
What I mean is that photo is immensely expensive. Our $5000.00 budget
barely pays for chemistry and film, much less new cameras, lights, toner,
mounting supplies, etc. Students spend anywhere from $40.00-$150.00 in
addition for their own paper and field trips. How do others out there fund
your photo programs? Any suggestions to get more bang for the buck?
