CHATHAM–The Board of Education heard this week that the district is likely to be able to remove a source of controversy over a new busing system. And Schools Superintendent Cheryl Nuciforo discussed a proposed capital project at the Tuesday, September 22, meeting.
Ms. Nuciforo said the district is very close to meeting the requests from 40 families for special busing arrangements. The new one-bell system that began this fall means elementary, middle and high school students ride the buses at the same time instead of in staggered morning and afternoon bus runs. The new system has meant more students ride each bus, and district officials originally were not sure they would be able to allow students to switch buses to accommodate child care needs.
