SCCPSS surveying parents on consolidated bus system for specialty schools

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

1,800 parents in Savannah-Chatham County Public School System have taken a survey about whether or not they want to have consolidated bus stops next year.

The school system began surveying folks last week.

The intent is to get rid of bus stops for students who attend specialty or charter schools and instead, designate ten stops where parents can drop off and pick up their child or students could walk.

"I think it's important that parents realize that this won’t look like regular transportation-- the bus won't be coming to your neighborhood so there will be efforts that have to be made on the part of the parents to actually get to those other locations-- so that has been a primary concern,” said Tammy Perkins, SCCPSS Executive Director of Support Services.

If passed, the proposal could save the district about $2 million a year.
