January 10, 2006
We would like school district 270 to re-evaluate the use of "Positive Connection Transportation Company" as our children's source of transportation to and from school and special events.
Positive Connection has been in use by our school district for 2 years and has yet to place our children as their priority. The parents from Gatewood Elementary school have been more then patient with the buses running anywhere from 15-45 minutes on a daily basis.
On several occasions the weather conditions where less then than suitable for children to sustain for long periods of time (below 0, rain, snow) and the school and transportation board where unaware of these delays for up to 1 hr. after the occurrence.
The transportation hotline is used for relaying information in regards to each delayed bus; the hotline is equipped with the time the message was placed on the hotline along with the date.
This is a great concept however, the transportation company is not being contacted in a timely manor by Positive Connection therefore, the hotline does not get updated which than leaves the parents ill informed.
The concerned parents, in conjunction with PTA, request that the Diocese of Camden evaluate the state of the school; the tuition rates, the three-tier tuition base and the fundraising assessment assigned to PTA.
