One, there is an agenda up for the Work Session and basically, staff will review how the gap is to be closed and the other item is...Pay for K. So whether or not the "found" $3.3M will go to it or not, it is to be discussed in some way.
Two, I was checking the Board meeting agenda and there was one change on the Transportation document which is to call AS#1, Pinehurst K-8. I don't know why; does anyone else know? Is it to reference them being a K-8?
Also, the following information was in the document and I urge you to take it to heart and spread it among your communities. We don't want anyone to NOT understand that there may not be transportation for some elementary students next year based on whether they are attending their attendance area school or not.
There are a number of changes to transportation eligibility and service for 2011‐12; please refer to the Transportation Service Standards for 2011‐12 for specific information. Some elementary grade students who are:
(1) currently eligible for transportation in 2010‐11,
(2) still live at their same address in 2011‐12,
(3) will attend the same school as in 2010‐11, and
(4) live outside of the assigned school’s transportation boundaries,
will not be eligible for any transportation service in 2011‐12. Students in this situation will be
guaranteed reassignment to their attendance area school if requested. Families are strongly encouraged to apply for this reassignment during Open Enrollment.
