Update on transportation issues

The new athletics district was announced recently and it is beginning to concern many coaches and sponsors. The main issue is the time it takes to get to these schools.

Before, the district consisted of mostly Lewisville ISD schools, all of which are less than ten miles from CHS. However several of the schools added to the district, such as Saginaw and Denton Guyer, are more than thirty minutes away. The prices of bus transportation, as mentioned in the article “Wheels on the bus go round, as budget stretches thin”, are the main concern for organizations that do any kind of competition that involves travel.

This district change could mean more money trouble for the band, Lariettes and football team, who take numerous buses to the games. The change will not take place until the beginning of the 2010 school year.
