Discussions to be held about transportation changes

Sunday, April 26, 2015 — The board of trustees for the Westwood Unified School District held its first discussion about transportation to and from school. Currently the district is not offering bus service because its driver is on leave and they have not found a qualified replacement.

Randy Bobby, the district’s superintendent, said they would hold several discussions on transportation in the next few months during board meetings in order to get public input. During this time, options and needs will be considered such as using one of the district’s regular vehicles to pick up students in need of transportation.

During the superintendent’s report to the board, Bobby said the district was applying for a KBK grant of $75,000 with a goal to reopen the section of Fletcher Walker Elementary that includes restrooms, the office, gym and cafeteria. The school was closed due to an issue with mold caused by leaks in the roof.
