This workshop was about transportation options. It started with Superintendent Green giving a little overview of past, present and potential future transportation options. Then Shannon Barnett, Director of Transportation, presented a PowerPoint presentation. First, he provides details on the hybrid transportation model that is currently being used, including shuttle functions, run zones, building specific direct drop functions, and school bus ride times from all locations. Next, Barnett presents the school board with three additional options; a neighborhood elementary schools and hybrid run model, a tiered schools and double-run model and a neighborhood elementary schools and double-run model.
After Shannon’s presentation, the floor was open to the school board to ask clarifying questions. And brainstorm the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats associated with each of the options.
Next, with all the information the workshop turned into an open discussion to way out the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for the hybrid transportation model and neighborhood elementary schools and double run model. Here are some of the highlights from that conversation:
Current Model (Tiered Elementary Schools with a Hybrid Transportation Model)
Neighborhood Elementary Schools and Double-Run Model
Based on the review of the various options board member agreed that further review and deeper study of shifting to neighborhood elementary schools with a double-run transportation system as a possible alternative to the current school configuration and transportation model should occur.
The next workshop on April 9th will be on facilities and safety.
President Watts adjourned at 7:57 p.m.
