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 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.
