Randolph Central School Corporation is considering a time shift in morning bus routes. Like many Indiana districts, this shift in morning times is being considered to create time for extended professional development as well as more frequent teacher collaboration to enhance student achievement and growth. State and federal mandates and accountability require more teacher training and collaboration.
This would NOT impact Deerfield Elementary School as their routes accommodate this change. Specific details for each family will be communicated by the transportation department as the bus routes are built this summer. There are two things Randolph Central would like to convey at this time:
- Morning bus routes, excluding Deerfield Elementary School, will run up to 15 minutes later each day. Afternoon routes will not be effected.
- The doors at Winchester Community High School and Driver Middle School will open for drop off at 8:00 AM instead of 7:30 AM.
The Board of School Trustees of Randolph Central School Corporation would like to invite public comment on this issue at their next School Board meeting on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 6:00 PM. The meeting will be held at the WCHS Fieldhouse Hospitality Room (west side) located at 335 S. High Street, Winchester, IN 47394.
