Board takes next step for in town bus route

At Monday’s Board of Education meeting, no action was taken, as the discussion of in town bus stops was tabled, so an advertisement for a school bus driver could be put in the Clarksville Star, Waverly newspaper and Iowa Teach Web site. If the district gets an acceptable applicant, action will be taken, if not, discussion will end. (Pat Racette Photo)

After sending out surveys to elementary students’ parents, the demand for bus stops in town proved to be high.

The problem, however, is Clarksville School District would have to purchase a full-time bus and driver to add an in town route. With five school buses currently, including a wheelchair and handicap assessable one, a sixth bus would be needed to make three of four centrally located stops around town.
