Three buses purchased
The Lake Superior School District Board has approved the purchase of three new buses at a cost of about $76,000 each. The district is able to purchase the buses after getting a four-day week approved, which saves the district about $250,000 a year.
Two of the buses would be used for regular routes while the other would be used as an activities bus in Silver Bay. That bus is projected to cost more than the regular ones. It has storage capabilities that result in fewer seats so it wouldn't be used for daily student routes. The extra cost would be covered by Silver Bay's "M" Club and the Kelley High School Athletic Council.
