No Activity Buses for 2019-20 School Year

Due to the McCleary decision not fully funding education, the District must cut a combined $9.2 million from the 2018-19 and 2019-20 budgets.

Among a series of cuts necessary to close our budget gap, the District recently identified the elimination of activity buses. Throughout the school year, SBLSD ran six activity buses at our middle and high schools that averaged about 10 students per bus. The District will continue to offer after-school extra-curricular activities and academic support.
