Alexander County Schools announced consolidated elementary and middle school bus routes. The consolidation will save the school system up to an estimated $240,000 by parking seven yellow buses. Advantages to the consolidation are reduced ride times for many students, increased state efficiency rates, less travel for 30-day inspections and refueling, and better compliance on special routes. The change will increase deadhead time (travel time without students), elementary early dismissal days will require double runs, and the coordination of yellow school bus use for field trips. List are the new elementary and middle start and end times as well as times for the high school and early college.
