Proposals to cut buses for after-school activities and realign school districts in the Fort Meade, Severna Park and Broadneck areas will top the agenda for today's Board of Education meeting.
School Superintendent Larry Lorton has proposed eliminating buses for after-school activities at county secondary schools. The buses run three days aweek; cutting them would save the financially strapped school system$348,000.
Lorton has also proposed eliminating early dismissal for high school students on the three semester exam days. The move would eliminate the need to have bus drivers work longer days while taking both elementary and secondary school students home.
The board also will vote on whether to submit to public hearings Lorton's proposals for realigning three county school districts.
The meeting is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at board headquarters on Riva Road.
