Katy, TX News (March 19, 2014) – During Monday’s Work Study meeting, the Katy ISD Board of Trustees heard a presentation on potential transportation options for the 2014-2015 school year. To keep up with the continued growth in Katy ISD, the District is considering transportation options that would expand bus routes, while maintaining efficiency and high levels of safety.
The presentation reviewed potential transportation models and options. Among the options being considered is a multi-bell schedule that would stagger school start and end times across the District and increase the number of bus routes. However, it was noted that the insufficient number of bus driver candidates continue to remain a challenge to meeting the demand for increased service.
District administration also provided an overview of state reimbursement for transportation, 2012-2013 transportation initiatives, and actions the District has taken since 2012-2013.
