San Dieguito district to keep middle school bus service for 2015-16
The San Dieguito Union High School District announced May 7 that it would continue to operate middle-school busing and athletic transportation for the 2015-16 school year.
Over the past few months, the district had gathered feedback on a proposal to eliminate the transportation services due to cost concerns and decreasing ridership. Bus ridership has been declining at district schools for the past few years, peaking in 2010-11 with 1,307 riders. But for 2015-16, it is projected to be at 696 students district-wide.
The district heard feedback from parents via an online survey and through comments at school board meetings.
While there will be no recommendation to eliminate middle-school bus service, the district will continue to examine operations to improve efficiency whenever possible.
