To improve the service we are able to provide our school community, school start and stop times will be adjusted beginning in September 2020.
Benefits of the proposed adjustments include:
- Creating a true tiered transportation system, with three school start options, 7:35 a.m., 8:15 a.m., or 8:55 a.m.
- Streamlining our system and routes to ensure more students will arrive on time—both to school and home.
- Utilizing fewer double-back and double-up runs; and, therefore, developing more efficient operations across the district.
- Increasing time between runs, to help reduce the stress on our bus drivers as they deal with any potential traffic delays.
Chesapeake Public Schools is seeking stakeholder input to determine what, if any, considerations should be made as we implement this initiative. The proposal is open for public comments until December 10, 2019.
