School Board discusses solutions to driver shortage

Walk a mile to school?

CHENEY – Under a proposal discussed by the School Board during a Sept. 28 meeting, students would have to walk to campus if they reside within a 1 mile radius of the campus.

The move comes as fuel prices continue to increase and bus drivers continue to be in short supply.

The School Board discussed seeking legislative support for walk zone improvements, enforcement of “1-mile walk zones,” and HopSkipDrive.

HopSkipDrive is a private transportation company that partners with school districts to provide transportation to students who may not have a safe alternative to school buses.
