Summary:
We are completing our final year with Durham School Services, our outsourced transportation vendor. Our original five-year agreement with Durham started in 2007 and our second five-year agreement began in 2012 for a total of 10 years of partnership. With no remaining renewal options, we are currently performing a Request for Proposal (RFP) for this service.
Upon receipt of all proposals, a district panel will review each and determine those entities where we would like to visit one of their existing client facilities.
A formal recommendation will be presented for your approval at either the April 27 or May 25 Board meeting (depending on the scheduling of any site visits).
 
Budgetary Impact:
For the 2015-16 school year, the total expenditure for Durham School Services was approximately $5,889,495.
Year-to-date expenditures for the current 2016-17 school year are at $3,659,499.
