Transportation update for the 2017-18 school year
The Board recently approved a new Transportation Policy on November 23, 2016. The previous policy was outdated as it relied on a Ministry of Education (MoE) policy that no longer exists.
The province of BC does not provide targeted funding for transportation. Across the province, districts have proposed changes to transportation in an effort to realize savings or to redirect funds back into the classroom.
District staff have indicated that there will be no changes in bus routes for the 2017-18 school year.
On December 14, 2016, Superintendent John Blain and Assistant Superintendent Bob Esliger presented a draft of Administrative Procedure 512 – Transportation.
After discussion, the Business committee recommended that the Board defer draft AP 512 – Transportation to the January 18, 2017 Business Committee meeting and that staff bring forward an outline with procedures governing safety.
