Northern Gateway Public Schools is asking for parents to share their thoughts in an online survey about an alternate seat fee for school transportation.
NGPS wants to find out how many parents/guardians are interested in paying for alternate school bus transportation to and/or from school, or from a location other than home.
The Board is exploring the option, which would cost parents/guardians an Alternate Seat Fee of $350 annually per child.
The fee would allow students who ride the school bus to be picked up and/or dropped off from a secondary location (one location other than home such as a child care facility or dayhome).
The survey asks 3 questions. It is located on www.ngps.ca and is open until June 20th. The school board will use the feedback to inform their decision going forward.
