District 200 buses - overcrowded?

Gus Philpott
November 6, 2010

Attention parents of Woodstock D200 students who rides buses to school and back...

Do your children report over-crowding on buses?

Last week I inquired what the capacity of a school bus in Woodstock is, and how is it calculated. Let's say, for high school students...

Do students sit two to a seat? Then it's easy to calculate the capacity. If there are 25 seats on a bus, the capacity is 50, plus the driver. Are more than 50 students assigned to ride a bus?

To me this seems a pretty simple question. One that could be answered with a simple email that might take 2-3 minutes to write. I sent my request on Tuesday afternoon. By the end of the day on Friday I had not received a reply.

I had a reason for inquiring, and I didn't intend to create a mountain out of a molehill. The lack of a response, however, now causes me to think that I might have uncovered something.

Are there any buses that have so many students that they must ride three to a seat?

OK, parents (or students)... let me know.
