I live on the Redlands and have grandchildren attending Broadway Elementary.  During the week I drive past Wingate School to pick them up from school for Little League and karate class.

There were 8 buses lined up to pick up students at the end of the school day. Because of the boundary rules I do not ever remember seeing one of those 8 buses more than half full of students.

I even saw 3 students being dropped off a half mile from school on South Camp road every day.

No matter the mileage ruling all those buses still had to take students to the farthest dropoff point they always did. Is that really a transportation issue for those who live within the 2 mile limit?  Buses still go right past the dropoff points.

Collection points could be set up to pick up groups of students within the mileage boundaries. 

Does the district really know how many students were riding the buses last year?

Does the public know how much the district pays First Student services?
