No limousines. They are going in the same buses that transport the in-district kids to school. The problem is they are going to several different locations and there is a limit to the time a child is allowed to sit on a bus. And yes we already share services with neighboring towns to keep the costs as low as possible.
And adding these kids to the District would not cost $27-32,000. If you have 90 kids spread pretty evenly over the 12 grades that's 7-8 kids per grade which probably can be absorbed without adding staff. But it would end up bringing the cost per pupil down because now you are educating an additional 90 kids within the same budget. View Comment
In our District the cost for transporting private and parochial students is $8200/student. This is nothing to sneeze at. It costs us more to transport a few dozen private/parochial school students to their various locations than it does totransport over 600 kids to the elementary school. It accounts for 2% of the budget. View Comment
