Students Must Pay To Ride Jefferson County Schools Buses

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- Students wanting to ride the Jefferson County Public Schools to class will have to pay to ride starting this fall.

Parents received emails about the fees this week. Parents will pay at least $100 per student.

The district said it has to charge because of state funding cuts. Jefferson County Public Schools slashed its budget and approved the bus fees this spring.

The district has set up a payment website.

    Disgraceful. Jefferson county is supposed to be one of the wealthiest counties in the country. Why do the schools and children have to suffer so?

  2. Rational Thought says:

    This is a must. The bus is not utilized by all students and is therefore a poor place to dump the little money that schools already don’t have. It makes perfect sense that the ones using theses buses should be responsible for the cost. This should be done with all programs to focus money where it should go, EDUCATION. If it is not something all students receive then it should not come out of the schools budget.
