How do changes in the bell schedule create cost savings?

Posted by:

The current two (2) tiered bell schedule is not efficient and is costly to operate, as it requires additional bus drivers to transport students. A schedule with multiple tiers is the industry standard used by other school districts and considered best practice because fewer drivers are needed for the required bus routes. By modifying the bell times, it will help alleviate the driver shortage faced by Kyrene as there is a statewide shortage of drivers.
