Kings BOE Asks For Community Feedback

Posted on: March 10, 2021

The Kings Local Board of Education has been engaged in discussions to achieve financial stability since completing the reopening of school this year. The purpose of these discussions is to closely examine the revenues and expenditures of the District in consultation with the Superintendent, Treasurer, and Administrative Team of the District to determine a path forward to maintain services and address a growing student population.  

We are looking at ways to transport students in the most fiscally responsible way. Since one of the largest costs in the District is transportation, the Board is interested in community feedback regarding transportation and school start/end times since transportation schedules also impact school bell schedules.  

In the survey below, you will see two different transportation options that offer different school start and end times. Each tier also comes at a cost to the District. The 2 tier transportation schedule is already forecasted in the budget/five-year forecast. The 2.5 tier transportation schedule would actually save the District $500,000/year, which could mean a 1/2 mil off of a future operating levy. Please take a look at the transportation cost survey which outlines the cost of each tier. 

The survey will start with an informational video from Superintendent, Tim Ackermann. Please take the time to complete the survey as your feedback makes a difference! The survey will close on Monday, March 15 at 4:00 p.m.
