The Madison Central School Board last night agreed to three stops for buses picking up open-enrolled students for the Rutland School District for the upcoming school year. The three stops will be Living Hope Wesleyan Church, the Hope Studios (or the former Garfield School), and the Trojan Field parking lot. Last night, the board heard a report from board member Shawn Miller about a meeting he and board members Ryan Hegg and Tom Farrell held with two members of the Rutland School Board and three Rutland parents and grandparents. Miller said the group had a lot of information for the board members, including the number of students who utilized the different stops last school year.
Miller said the data the parent group provided to them was very helpful.
Miller said that after seeing the numbers, it didn’t take them long to come up with their recommendation. He said he wishes they would have done this sooner.
Board president Tom Farrell said that the Rutland School Board has received permission from the three locations to use them as stops for the upcoming school year.
Along with the Rutland agreement, the Madison school board also approved agreements with Chester and Oldham-Ramona School Districts for the utilization of the same one stop locations that they had last school year.
