Busy Night For Freeport School Board

FREEPORT - School leaders vote in favor of a pair of proposals that will affect a number of students.

FREEPORT - School leaders vote in favor of a pair of proposals that will affect a number of students.

The first involves school buses.  The district had been approached by the Dakota School District to handle transportation for its students.  The board voted unanimously to approve a three year deal to bus Dakota students.  The move will save Dakota $100,000 per year.

It's not a done deal yet though.

The Dakota School District has to vote in favor of the deal.  A vote on that is expected at its February 24th meeting.

Also, Freeport school board members made a change in policy in regards to student transfers within the district.  Parents can now request a transfer to a school outside of their attendance area.
