I got an email earlier from my oldest DD's school district about registering for the bus. It's not something I planned to do but, I was completely shocked when I saw the price: $175 per student, per semester. So, that would be $350 a year!
Is it just me or is that crazy? It's for public school, not private.

That's normal here.... but yours is a bit cheaper. Here it's $250/student with a family max of $400... public school. It's that or higher in the surrounding towns.

That's nuts. Our district did away w/ bussing for under 2 miles & for the HS altogether. When they had mtgs. w/ parents, I suggested selling advertising space on the busses like they do for city busses. That would help pay for transportation costs. Have they done it? NO. I can't imagine too many parents being able to afford that outrageous fee to have their kids ride the bus. My guess is you will see a lot of car pooling going on. GL
