School Day Start and End Times To Change With Bus Schedule
As part of several cost-savings measures, the bus system will change school day start and end times.
Schools in the Mehlville School District will adjust their start and end times next year due to a change in the transportation department.
Buses will change from a three-tier to four-tier system, eliminating 12 driver positions and restructuring routes and school times.
The change is part of $4.6 million in budget cuts and savings unanimously passed by the school board March 24.
Reductions in fuel, mileage and personnel will save the district $212,000.
“I realize this new system will be an adjustment for many of you, and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we develop this cost-saving measure for the District,” Superintendent Terry Noble said in a letter to parents.
The late-starting elementary schools will rotate every four years that the four-tier plan is in effect.
