Assignment Plans Complicate Bus Routes for JCPS
Transportation officials with Jefferson County Public Schools have made some changes to the district’s bus routes.JCPS Transportation Director Rick Caple says the district faces a challenge this year because the new student assignment plan for elementary school students goes into effect. Students entering elementary school will be under the new plan, but existing elementary students can opt to stay under the old plan.Caple says this presents a logistics challenge for bus routes, and some bus stops have changed as a result.“Parents may object to some of our bus stops," says Caple. "We’re going to ask parents to walk a little farther to the bus stops. Not as many house stops, more corner stops this year.”The JCPS Bus Route Finder was posted on-line over the weekend. The first day of school is August 13th.
