Savannah-Chatham County BOE discuss First Student contract renewal

Posted: Updated:

The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System Board of Education officials discussed a one year renewal on Wednesday night for the First Student contract.

First Student currently provides all school bus services for the school system. The new contract only includes a few minor changes.

"As everything that happens with the district, it's all about our students and making sure that what it is we expect for our students is what we receive," said Tammy Perkins, executive director of support services. "Making sure our students are picked up on time, that they are delivered on time and everything is done in a safe, efficient manner."

The district is working with First Student to work out new bus schedules to accommodate the change in bell times across several of the schools. These bell changes take effect during the upcoming school year.
