Dear Community Members,
The Governor's proposed budget eliminated transportation funding that amounted to a loss of $282,000 for Regional School District 13. The Appropriations Committee also proposed the elimination of transportation funding. Student transportation is fundamental to the educational process and is mandated to be made available to all students. Transportation accounts for 5% of the total school budget and the elimination of the grant is a significant financial loss to the district. It is imperative that you contact your legislators (listed below) and let them know that you want the transportation grant restored. We thank you for your efforts.
