MIFFLINBURG - Mifflinburg Area School District will look at moving to two-tier busing in an effort to save money, said Superintendent Dan Lichtel at the school board meeting Tuesday night.
Many Valley school districts use such a system, he said, in which the buses make two different runs. "We may be in a minority as a single-run system," he said.
The move could save the district some $100,000 in transportation costs and offer some possible advantages to students' instruction time.
Lichtel said he understands such a change could pose an inconvenience for some people, but there would be time to adjust. He also doesn't anticipate rolling out two-tier busing next school year.
