Province Launches School Bus Survey

Government wants to hear from parents and guardians as it prepares to make improvements to the public school bus system.

Starting today, Nov. 14, parents and guardians will be able to fill out an online survey about their experiences with their regional school bus systems.

“Parents have a right to expect safe, reliable bus service for their children,” said Zach Churchill, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development. “I’m looking forward to receiving feedback, which will help us make adjustments to improve this important service.”

The survey is one component of a larger consultation that will include, School Advisory Councils, the Provincial Advisory Council on Education, principals, Minister’s Advisory Council on Student Issues, CUPE, NSGEU, the Special Education Programs and Services Committee, and the Council to Improve Classroom Conditions, a group comprised of teachers and education specialists, which is co-chaired by the Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union.

All comments and survey results will be compiled in a summary that will be shared with the public and used to determine a new policy on public school transportation for the province.

The survey is posted online at http://www.ednet.ns.ca/bussurvey . The deadline for feedback is Dec. 5.
