Transition Day Transportation

“Transition Day” in the Francis Howell School District is an opportunity for incoming sixth and ninth graders to familiarize themselves with their new school. This year, Transition Day will be held at all FHSD middle and high schools on Friday, Aug. 4.

As part of the continuing efforts of FHSD to reduce expenditures and remain good stewards tax payer dollars, the District will not provide bus transportation for this optional event this year. Eliminating transportation for Transition Day will save approximately $43,000.

FHSD continues to make budget reductions to minimize the deficit and maximize financial reserves. The District has made $20 million in budget cuts over the past five years, and has reduced staff by the equivalent of 190 full-time positions since 2008.

Earlier this year, the FHSD Board of Education directed District administration to launch three different task forces (Transportation, Extracurricular, and Non-Tax Revenue Sources) to investigate expenditure reductions and increasing non-tax revenue. The different task forces are comprised of both staff and community members, with a special focus on identifying individuals who have areas of expertise that correspond with the work of each task force.
