The September meeting of the North Royalton Board of Education took place on September 11.
The Board approved the 2023-24 appropriation adjustments.
School Superintendent Matt Laub stated that “we sent an email out to parents from transportation about opting out if your child is not a regular rider. We sent that out because, obviously, driver shortage creates an issue and so what we are trying to do is tighten up those routes as much as we can, so keep an eye out for that email and spread the word to your friends to take a peek at that email and if you are interested in driving a bus, give me a call. We’d be happy to train you and get you on your way.”
The Board approved the following transfers: 401-9022 Auxiliary Services – St. Albert to 401-9023 Auxiliary Services – St. Albert’s, $28,823.87; 401-9022 Auxiliary Services – Royal Redeemer to 401-9023 Auxiliary Services – Royal Redeemer, $13,578.33.
