Board Considering Dropping Bus Route

Posted 7/30/2013

The USD 460 School Board met Monday, July 22 for a regularly scheduled meeting.
During the meeting the Board was given an update on potential changes to bus routes.

“We have taken a look and operated on what if we could have four routes, not five. We have been crunching the numbers,” said Superintendent Paul Becker.

Fiesel Jayhay said traditionally the school tries to be contentious of students’ time spent on the bus.

“It has been our practice, we don’t pick up before 7 a.m. and we recommended that students not be on the bus longer than an hour.

“With that being said, I looked at if we took a couple students and shuffled them around, we feel like we could cover the five routes with four routes. But, we will probably be picking some kids up five or 10 minutes before 7 a.m.,” he said.

However, Jayhay said students would still be arriving early enough for breakfast.
