Elkhart Community Schools hold second meeting to discuss busing


Some big changes could impact your child's education, but Elkhart Community School leaders want your input first.

The goal is to tackle a big budget shortfall by reducing the number of buses needed to transport kids to school.

The proposal includes changing school start and end times.

It would also adjust elementary boundaries.

Tonight the district held another public meeting to get feedback from parents.

Doug Thorne of Elkhart Community Schools says, "I think its really important to obtain input from the community whenever you're making a decision like this..because certainly parents and students are going to be impacted by this. Its also providing us some opportunities as well as in terms of providing a longer school day for elementary students which would benefit them for additional learning time."

If you could not make tonight's meeting, the final one will be Wednesday night at West Side Middle School.
