Sturgeon Bay School District Inks Busing Contract

The Sturgeon Bay School District is getting out of the busing business.

The Board of Education this week approved of entering into a contract with Kobussen to provide busing services for the district. The three-year deal goes into effect July 1.

Currently Sturgeon Bay handles its own busing, as do other districts in Door County.

District Superintendent Joe Stutting says the move was revenue-driven and the extra funds will allow the district to complete roofing repairs and other capital projects.

Stutting says the sale of the district's fleet of buses is expected to net just under $320,000.

Aside from no longer being in charge of busing students during the school year, Stutting says the move relieves the district from having to provide bus service during the summer months. 

Stutting says the district's bus drivers will not only get an opportunity to drive for Kobussen, he says Kobussen is "counting on" it, and in fact will need to find others.

"They're still going to need to find more bus drivers," says Stutting. "Several of our bus drivers were also custodians and building engineers and those people will not be available."
