First Student Says It's Ready for the New School Year
Unit 5 School District is hoping to avoid some of the busing problems that plagued the district at the beginning of last school year. Its busing company First Student officials spoke to the Unit 5 school board on Wednesday night, assuring them that they are ready for the upcoming school year. Last year, Unit 5 overhauled its busing system, moving to a two tier system. During the transition, students and parents saw overcrowding problems and buses showing up late to school, sometimes by hours.
