Parents in Colorado’s third-largest school district are being asked to pay if their kids want to ride the bus to school.
The Douglas County school board voted 5-0 Tuesday night to approve a 50-cent-per-ride transportation fee starting next school year. The decision will affect about 17,000 students who ride the bus this year. The district hopes to raise $2 million with the program.
The buses will have Zonar GPS units to track student ridership. Students will have a card or a ZPass that will track their use of the bus.
Douglas County Schools will have to pay $221,000 in three equal installments over the next three years to fully implement the GPS tracking technology. READ MORE AT SOURCE
