Change the transportation Policy for SASD elementary schools

This petition had 174 supporters

 This petition is to  show the Shippensburg Area School District School Board the need to change Transportation Policy 206.  Currently, the district has Transportation Policy 206 in place which states "The Board shall determine the school attendance areas of the District and shall expect the students within each area to attend the school so designated" and therefore, if students attend a daycare provider, the daycare must be in their assigned school zone to be eligible for district transportation."  Shippensburg Area School District is home to three elementary schools, Nancy Grayson, James Burd and Grace B. Luhrs, but this problem is only an issue for the elementary schools Nancy Grayson and James Burd.   

The majority of State approved daycare centers in Shippensburg lie within the James Burd lines leaving families of Nancy Grayson limited options.  With your support we are asking the board to amend the policy to allow students to attend the schools where the reside REGARDLESS of where the daycare center is located.  By changing this policy the district would be responsible for transporting those students attending a licensed daycare center that is located within the Borough of Shippensburg to either elementary school.  This will give families more choices when selecting a childcare provider.
