LOCAL NEWS-
The Crookston School Board held their regular meeting last night at Crookston High School. Tanya Moore of Crookston, a parent in the school district, addressed the Board with her concerns about a busing issue with her three children. Because she works in Grand Forks, her children stay with both her and her ex-husband. However, current bus policy does not allow their children to be picked up and dropped off at two different bus stops, which endangers her children in this bitterly cold weather. The Board members said this, and similar busing issues have been addressed before, but policies take time and process to change, as they must follow state statute. “All I want to hear from you tonight is to go ahead and let your children ride the bus, until this gets changed,” Ms. Moore stated. While the Board could not accommodate that request, they did promise that the Transportation Committee would meet to address the issue as soon as possible. "They were frustrated.  We have had a policy in place for about eight years and a lot of things have changed in those eight years, it is more common for families to be blended and because of the situation, Ms. Moore came to ask the board to look at the policy," said Superintendent Chris Bates. "The board followed what the normal plan and asked the administration to look at this and get the transportation committee together to hash it out and see if something needs to be changed."
