Start and dismissal times change for many CPSD schools next school year

LAKEWOOD- Effective Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016, the start and dismissal times for many schools in Clover Park School District (CPSD) will change. These changes are necessary to improve efficiency of school bus routes and manage a statewide bus driver shortage. The new start and dismissal times for schools will improve bus service to students, including the “on-time” rate, and optimize bus driver staffing levels.

“In light of the nationwide bus driver shortage, our transportation staff has done a remarkable job transporting students and keeping them safe,” said CPSD superintendent Debbie LeBeau. “We now must adjust start and dismissal times to maintain our high level of service.”
