MENOMONIE — The Menomonie school district is looking at making some minor tweaks to its transportation policy.

On Monday night, the board looked at updating the policy to reflect the district’s current practices for students in the kindergarten program for 4-year-olds.

Last month, board members and some parents addressed concerns about bus stops in the district. The board heard complaints last month about the visibility of children at bus stops as well as the distance a child has to walk to a bus.

The addition proposed to the policy states that “the district shall also provide free transportation for all district 4K students living in the school district with pickups offered at home or daycare sites within the attendance area and established bus route for each residence.”

Schools Superintendent Joe Zydowsky said Monday night that the proposed changes reflect state laws.

The board will vote on the proposed changes in October.
