As you all probably know, Lakota schools are in huge deficit. We think that transportation is the biggest problem Lakota faces. One bus costs 70,000 dollars a year! That means that approximately 14 busses will cost one-million dollars! We think that the best way to fix this problem is to try to find as many homes as we can that kids can walk and/or be driven to school by parents/guardians. Also, kids with a driver’s license and has a car to drive will be rejected from bus service.
Busing in Lakota cost a total of $16,500,000. Lakota has approximately 236 buses in its district. We estimate that we can cut at least 25% of buses (59 buses) which saves us 4,130,000.
First we must see which parents can take their children to school on their way to work. We can do this by recording a message sent out to every family. The people in each office can make the recording. After that, we can choose which buses to cut. The buses that will not be as efficient anymore will be cut.
The students who will be affected must be informed via e-mail, telephone, or through a letter done by either the board of education or the people who work in the office of each school. Then we must inform the bus drivers who will be affected because if we cut buses, we must also cut drivers. We can notify the bus drivers the same way we would notify the students.
Thank you for watching this presentation. We hope this helps you take a plan of action to save Lakota from it’s deficit.
