The BOE discussed the potential of a Tiered Transportation plan which would impact start and end times for students, as well as, transportation services configuration. In an effort to improve our transportation services, several plans were considered to: reduce student route times, eliminate elementary students from riding with middle and high school students, to create a consistent morning and afternoon driver for all students and to reduce the conflict between afternoon extra-curricular events and valuable instructional time. After several community meetings, stakeholder feedback and feasibility studies, the BOE accepted the superintendent's recommendation to keep existing transportation service model with a few changes for improvement:
- School Start and End TimesMorning Transportation Service will remain the same with all students being picked up at the same time in the mornings and middle and high school students utilizing express routes.
- Elementary 7:45 AM-2:20 PM
- Middle 8:00 AM-3:20 PM
- High 8:00 AM-3:10 PM
- Afternoon routes will deliver elementary students between 2:30 and 3:30PM; middle and high school routes will be combined and deliver students between 3:30 and 4:45PM.

Once acknowledged, the visitor will be asked to do the following:
- State name
