The contracted bussing company is going to follow the terms of the contract which states k-12 students.
The superintendent has requested the company to determine if they would open the contract to include prek and at what cost.
When that information is available the school committee will decide on next steps.
The current bussing contract expires at the end of 15-16. We will go out to bid for the following years with the terms defined as prek-12.
HOWEVER, AT THIS TIME (AND UNTIL WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION) AES WILL BE UNABLE TO PROVIDE PARENTS OF STUDENTS IN THE PRE-K PROGRAM WITH TRANSPORTATION. PLEASE KNOW, WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEEK SOLUTIONS TO THIS HARDSHIP.
