The Board of Education has approved a delay in the implementation of a HUB Transportation Plan for High School Choice Program students. Over the course of the implementation phase for this initiative, staff have developed operational procedures, analyzed cost, surveyed parents, held public meetings, and extensively reviewed all functions of the Pupil Transportation department. At this time, District Administration believes the launch of a HUB Transportation System in the 2020-2021 School Year will not satisfy all of the intended goals of the program and more time is needed to ensure all deliverables are met to include student and staff safety, ride time efficiency, cost variables, and staffing needs.
A resolution to delay the HUB Transportation system, to allow further study of the Hub Transportation System approach and other methods for delivering cost efficiencies within Pupil Transportation was offered and supported by the Board at the December 11th meeting. Administration continues to review all aspects of efficiencies for improving the cost of Pupil Transportation. The HUB Transportation System for Choice Program High School students will not be launched in the 2020-2021 school year to allow continued study and review of cost saving methods.
