Sheldon, Iowa — When the Board of Education of the Sheldon Community Schools meets Wednesday for their regular September session they’ll discuss the shortage of available seats on the District’s in-town after school buses.
You may recall that shortly after the beginning of the current school year the District had encouraged parents to have their children, whenever possible, walk or ride their bicycles to school, or have someone drop them off in the morning and pick them up at the end of the day. They further said that if parents chose to rely on school transportation for in-town bus stops, they were requested to have a backup plan in place, just in case your child was not able to utilize school transportation due to the bus being filled to capacity. Superintendent Robin Spears has placed the issue on this month’s agenda in order to get some direction from the Board in looking for solutions to this problem.
In other action, the Board is scheduled to take up a list of Open Enrollment Applications, approve some employment contracts, as well as approve education service contracts for school district resident students receiving educational services in other school districts or care facilities, along with other routine agenda items.
Wednesday’s meeting is scheduled for 6 pm in the Sheldon High School Library.
