To help increase efficiency in the transportation department and maintain relatively low rates for the long-term, the Board of Education directors are considering a change to the fee structure for the 2017-18 school year. Moving from a structure with only per-ride, monthly and annual payment options to per-ride, quarterly, semester and annual payment options will provide additional cost saving options when families purchase annual or semester passes.
