Please provide information

Please provide information that the majority of parents favored the staggered school schedule. Everyone I talked to about it was against it. For the families where both parents work and the children went to different schools, it was a nightmare. A lot of parents have to rely on their high school aged children to look after the elementary school aged children in the afternoons and that is not possible with the high school students getting out an hour later.

My daughter is a junior this year and when she was in sixth grade the buses were transporting middle school and high school students at that time. Neither schedule changes that.

Great planning

Wow, now how are you going to get enough bus drivers to drive all of those buses for three separate grade levels? Oh, you are probably going to make sixth grade children (an 11 year old ) ride with a 12th grade student (could be as old as 20). Nice!

Glad to see they are doing what is best for the students!

Brunswick County Schools is a joke.

Middle & High School

Middle & High School students have been riding the same buses for several years.

Some parents are never going to be happy with the schedule for the schools. This year's schedule worked great but a vocal minority of parents had to whine and get it changed.

Agree!!! There was less

Agree!!! There was less traffic in Leland during the morning hour with this schedule. Next year watch out more traffic back up. School board shall have left the schedule the same.

BCSs needs to make known the

BCSs needs to make known the amount of discipline issues there were between high and middle school students during the four or five years they tried the idea.

Why did they change the schedule to begin the with? It was not to save fuel, they added 30% more busing with the new schedule. It wasn't to make scheduling less of an overlap for HS students , tutoring and activities kept those kids there past 6:00.

Again, Brunswick County Schools and the leadership within is a joke. Maybe Swirly Babson got the idea by watching the Discovery Channel (remember, she believes that kids are behind because they don't watch it enough).

Board Meeting is tomorrow!

The next School Board meeting is Nov 8th at 6pm...the following meeting is December 4th. Speak out!
