There is strong support from the chair of the Kootenay Columbia school board to put an unexpected windfall towards the new bus charge.
Faced with a $750,000 shortfall SD 20 opted to start charging each child $200 a year to use the school bus.
But last week the province announced they wouldn’t be billing for admin fees. That means a $178,000 saving for SD 20.
Teri Ferworn would like to see all of it subsidize the busing.
She says trustees will meet Tuesday to discuss what to do.
