It looks like a small number of families who take advantage of grandfathering this year will be able to still receive bus service.
School board members signalled support today for a new process that would allow families who would normally be ineligible for bus service to file paperwork to request transportation. This new method would likely be approved next month in time for this year's transfer requests.
Under the process, staff would consider the requests. If rejected, parents could file a student grievance request to the school board.
But staff and board members said they expect relatively few transportation requests to be approved. Factors that would be considered include that it not increase the time of the bus trip, lead to more buses or increase transportation costs.
They say it should be rare that a bus would still run through a grandfathered kid's neighborhood that goes to the old base school.
