Metcalfe County Schools may increase bus routes

EDMONTON — By Shelley Smith

Increasing school bus routes was a main point of conversation at the Metcalfe County Schools board meeting Tuesday.

Herby Bunch, director MCS department of pupil transportation, had the school board members look at increasing routes for the four routes to the north of the county and the four routes to the south of the county to keep the average student ride time to an hour. Interim Superintendent Byron Jeffries said they’d look into add another route to keep ride times down. The board members agreed to submit a survey home with each student to see if their parent plan to drive them to school or if they plan on riding the bus. They hope the surveys will help them identify the need for additional bus routes.

In other news, the Race to the Top grant, school safety, and the 2013-2014 school budget were also discussed.
