    • A Brief Recap  Transportation Department report to the School Board in October, 2012  Purpose was to inform and educate  School Board requested a survey of parents of current students that are in walk zones  Survey was conducted in the Spring of 2013  937 parents were e-mailed the survey  374 responded
    • The Survey Questions  I have __ Children that are in a walk zone to school  Options were 1,2,3 or More than 3  My students are in __ Grade level  Options were Half-Day K, Elementary and All-Day K, Middle School, and High School  I would pay a fee to have a bus stop for my children  Options were Yes or No  If yes, the maximum I would be willing to pay for this service per year is:  Options were No more than $100, $200, $300 or More than $300
    • The Results  374 Responses  58.3% with High School students responded  45.7% with Elementary students responded  68.2% would not pay a fee for bus service  62.8% of those willing to pay would not pay more than $100
    • Comparison of Cost to Revenue  $47,500 to add a route bus to the transportation system  $11,900 might be generated by Fees  Charging $100 per student  $35,600 would need to be provided by the District  The alternative is to absorb the additional passengers into the current routing system  Elementary Route buses are currently at capacity
    • Considerations If We Move Forward  Determine Fee and Payment Process  Determine consideration for students who are utilizing the Free or Reduced Meal Plan  Determine the procedure for identifying students who have paid the fee, and the repercussions for families who try to access the bus that haven’t  Re-route buses to service participating students  Make every effort to not add route buses to system  Monitor participation and public reaction
    • Questions  Any Questions?
