Parents shopping for back-to-schools supplies might have to dig deeper into their wallets this year.
Experts say as school budgets tighten, students are being asked to buy more supplies to make up the difference. A new survey by Huntington Bank found supplies for a middle-school student this year averages about $312, about $100 more than last year.
High school students can expect to pay about $20 more than last year, which totals out to around $350.
