The SWL Transportation Department and the District Administration have listened to your concerns on busing this past year and are working this summer to help remedy many of the issues. The District has set the following goals to improve transportation for next year:

  • Get the "family feel" back - allow students (K-5) to ride the same bus together
  • Elementary students arrive home at the same time - so older kids can watch the younger kids
  • Shorten the bus ride time for as many students/families as possible
  • Reduce the number of buses picking up students on the same roads
  • Allow for the students to ride the same bus in the morning and evening, having the same driver
  • Increase overall efficiency
At the May Board of Education meeting, I presented several changes that we will be making over the summer to help meet these goals. These changes can be found in the board video section of our webpage at http://www.swl.k12.oh.us/BoardVideos.aspx. I also encourage everyone to watch the webpage for updates on the progress of these changes this summer and to help answer your questions.

Have a safe and relaxing summer,

Robert T. Jennell
