RTS and RCSD reach summer busing agreement

Posted By on Thu, May 14, 2015 at 12:39 PM

The Rochester City School District and the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority have reached a deal to provide bus service for summer school students. The details are still being worked out. In a letter to Bill Carpenter, CEO of RTS, schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas said that he will seek an additional $350,000 in state aid to fund the service.

Most of the district's summer learning programs begin in July and go through August. They represent a key part of Vargas's strategy to improve student achievement by reducing what educators sometimes refer to as summer learning loss.

Talks between RCSD and RTS concerning bus service for the 2015-2016 school year are ongoing, says Rochester school board President Van White.
