In order to find the $700,000 Secretary-Treasurer Doug Boyd says is needed to match revenues with expenditures, the idea of charging rural students to use school buses has been proposed. Based on this year’s ridership, those fees would bring in $406,000, which means the School District would still be looking to make almost an additional $300,000. 

From 5 to 8 p.m. at the School District 60 board office, parents will be given information on the current situation, and will have an opportunity to provide their own ideas on how to come up with the money.
