GREE­LEY CUTS TO YIELD LONGER STU­DENT WALKS

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Tommy Sim­mons

Gree­ley-Evans School District 6 of­fi­cials will ex­pand walk dis­tances for stu­dents at all grade lev­els next school year and change start times for classes in a move that will save the district at least $667,000.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Deirdre Pilch told mem­bers of the Gree­ley-Evans School District 6 school board Mon­day that the change was nec­es­sary be­cause the district needs about 16 bus driv­ers to be fully staffed. Un­der the new plan, Pilch es­ti­mated, the district would still need six or seven driv­ers.

Ele­men­tary school stu­dents walk no more than 1N miles but may have to walk upto1 K miles un­der the new plan. Mid­dle school stu­dents’ walk bound­aries will in­crease from a 1K to2 miles, and the bound­ary for high school stu­dents may in­crease from 2N to 3 miles.

District spokes­woman Theresa My­ers said high school stu­dents will have to meet the bus at a stop, much as they would a city bus.
