Why don’t we contract for our busing services?
Randall currently has its own bus fleet. Historically this has been an opportunity to provide excellent service to our students and parents at a reduced cost as compared to contracting the service. There was a detailed analysis of our transportation costs conducted five years ago. The difference in cost and service to operate our own transportation was significant. We have continued to work extremely hard to keep transportation costs affordable by maintaining our fleet, but we have specific needs to update our bus fleet. Our overall goal is to make sure our students get to school in a safe, efficient manner. We will continue to analyze our needs on an ongoing basis and the board will make decisions with safety, efficiency, and expense as the primary factors.
