Transportation Update 8/29/18

Each day at WCS we run 22 bus routes, and cover approximately 161 square miles.  The majority of those routes, both secondary and elementary, are running smoothly and are timely.  Due to enrollment/address changes and increased ridership, as well as our Grade Level Center transportation needs, we are aware that there remain about 7 to 8 routes that are not meeting expectations.

We are working on a permanent solution that will improve arrival times in the morning and yield shorter ride times for student on those routes.

Permanent Solution:  We are creating an additional route to be implemented by Sept 14th, once a driver can be hired, trained, and certified.

In the meantime, we are alleviating some of the issues by making adjustments to a number of current secondary and elementary routes. While not up to expectation, the affected routes should continue to see improvements over the next few weeks as we work on creating the additional route for a permanent solution.

Communication:  If your child’s route number and/or their pick-up/drop-off time is changed over the next few weeks, you will be notified in 2 ways.

  1. A letter from the Transportation Department will be sent home with your child

  2. A copy of the letter sent home with your student will also be mailed to your home address on file.

Throughout the year, as enrollment and addresses change, we will continue to review our routes and make changes if necessary. If your child’s route changes 15 minutes or more, you will be notified by the same communication methods stated above.

Please read our recent Report to the Board for more information.
