Lansing School District Privatizing Their Bus System

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) - The Lansing School District plans to privatize their school bus system.

The school board voted to enter a bussing contract with Dean Transportation during their meeting Thursday night.

It's a move the district says will save them $760,000 a year.

However, it could also mean cuts to staff. The board voted to send notices to some employees that layoffs could be in the future.

Lansing Board of Education President Peter Spadafore says the district needs to cut $6 million from its budget before the end of June.
