Planning for Transportation in the Two Rivers Supervisory Union
Transportation in the
Two Rivers Supervisory
requires Supervisory Unions to “provide or make provision for transportation”
to the extent that such transportation is provided. The Agency of Education is interpreting this
statutory requirement as not only “command and control,,” but financial control
as well. I will include a memo from the
Secretary of Education on this issue as background. One thing is clear and that is we must do a
study. While we may end up asking for a
waiver arguing that the SU cannot beat the quality and efficiency of the
current system, we do need to make a good faith effort to achieve
efficiencies. Moreover the scenarios by
which financial control would be exercised come with inherent complexity. We need Board members from each system to
help, along with our transportation professionals and citizens. The administration will put together options
and try to keep the meetings to a minimum, generally in April and May.
transportation system designed for cost efficiency, flexibility, energy
efficiency, safety and educational opportunities.
