Wheatland Center School to stick with own buses

Wheatland Center School will continue using its own bus fleet and drivers for the 2010-2011 school year but board members continue to be open to changing transportation in the future if the right situation comes along.

The board this year asked for proposals for transporting students from bus companies, but concluded that keeping the distrcit’s fleet was still the best situation right now.

“I think financially it’s more beneficial,” said board member Troy Bruley.

And despite settling the matter for the coming school year, board members were still kicking around ideas at Tuesday’s board meeting.

Brumley said Dousman Transport, which buses most of Western Kenosha Counties students, told him that the best savings come from piggy-backing routes with another school. However, the company did not offer a district that would work with Wheatland’s schedule.

Board member Timothy Driscoll said he would be willing to explore possibilities of sharing buses with Randall School, the only other nearby district that has its own bus fleet.
