I Support this because every kid deserves access to school and great bussing. Suffern Central's policy is not consistent with anyone else anywhere.
If education is truly important to this county, then getting our children to their place of education should be a priority. These proposed cuts affect the entire county, not just this district, because, if education is not important to your neighboring district, then an entire area is at risk for problems.
I am A SCSD residence and pay a huge school tax bill yearly, this kind of action creates private school parents to run from being on public school board memeber and then creates the conflicts and diffrances to look the way East Ramapo School board.
My children deserve safe transportation to and from school. The steep taxes I pay, which includes a sizable section that provides for the comfort and wellbeing of the public school children (with ironically multiple bus schedules), should be sufficient enough for my children's basic right to their time appropriate buses. The Suffern Central School District's services must be equitable for all children.
We deserve better after the amount of taxes we pay and use minimum from the district -our kids deserve to be bussed home according to three schools schedule not the transportation department -your staff earns enough to money to make whatever it takes work for your overexhausted overpaid taxpayers
It makes no sense for a first grader and an eighth grader to have the same arrival and dismissal time.
A District is to provide services for all its constituents public and non public. Pulling the ropes in a way that only non public school children is simply unethical . We deserve better and respectfully expect better
I chose, and appreciate living in Suffern. However Noone will deny taxes are exorbitant and of the highest around. If I pay very high taxes to live here, and I don't incur much expense to the township in schooling my child, I believe we are at least entitled to busing. It would cost the Township way, way more to educate my child.
I feel this is wrong from the town of Ramapo, I pay taxes and the only thing we get from the town, is school bus services!! Now they want to limit it too. Also residents living next to schools will suffer of the amount of traffic will become because of all mothers dropping off their children! And most upsetting is for me as a mom of different age children will have to do multiple dropoffs. As my schedule is not complicated enough, when will we moms get to relax!
SCSD has already significantly diminished the amount of schoolndays that non-public school children receive transportation. There is enough room in the budget to cover transportation costs as the budget grows and property taxes increase with each passing school year. If SCSD needs to find more money in their budget for other pursuits, let them look elsewhere. Enough taking from the non-public school population.
