Parents, whether they have children riding school buses or not, are asked to let the Central Okanagan School District know their feelings on the service.

Busing takes $3.1 million out of school operating funds each year, according to an email sent to parents by School District 23, and a steering committee is conducting a review of the costs.

There are two ways for parents to participate.

One is to take five to 10 minutes to fill out an online survey here.

The other is to attend one of five public meetings.

All the meetings will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

  • Dec. 3 at Canyon Falls Middle School.
  • Dec. 5 at George Elliot Secondary School
  • Dec. 9 at Mount Boucherie Secondary School
  • Dec. 10 at Rutland Secondary
  • Dec. 12 at Dr. Knox Middle School
