The Government of Alberta is reviewing the transportation support it provides to school boards, to ensure we have the necessary resources to provide busing services to our students.
The Government of Alberta wants to hear from you.
As part of the review, the government is asking families to complete an online survey. Feedback provided in the survey will help determine potential changes to the distance criteria, the mandated service levels, and what safety considerations should be included in the criteria. The survey closes on June 15.
As your Board Chair, I encourage all families to participate in this survey. Transportation is a significant issue for PWSD and your Board has been lobbying for change for a number of years.

Also, I have attached a document summarizing the issue of underfunding as it relates to PWSD's transportation services. Trustees presented this information to MLAs at a meeting earlier this year.
