Oh man.. This is getting ponderous..

County is going to go broke..

MCPS’ fleet of more than 1,300 buses will operate at about 25% of its total capacity, each limited to 12 passengers, a severe logistical challenge for a school district that last year transported approximately 100,000 of its 166,000 students on buses each day.

Yep, while people are stuck not earning what they did a year ago because of shutdowns, and now logistics taking care of kids. The county piggyback tax on MD income tax, love to see what that brings in for 2020.

Major impact to dual income families. Someone has to stay home.

I'm in HoCo which is looking to turn out a similar shit show but my ex lives in SS and my kids attend MCPS. My rising senior hates school and completely checked out with online school especially once they effectively did away with grades. This year will be the same I bet for both the school and my kid. I'd say, "Fine, the world needs ditch diggers too", but my kid (like most it appears nowadays) is completely allergic to work.

All I can say is, thanks to my 100% VA disabled wife, we are no longer funding this insanity with no more property (school) taxes paid. Of course, when they raise the MD state tax to 10% or more, we're boned (again since we already pay the max 8%) but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

How in the heck are they going to transport that many kids if they can only carry 8 to 12 kids per bus? Those buses hold 50 kids and if you lived a mile or less you had to walk to school. I bet now they will raise it to 2 miles for the kids to walk..

It is! But since it's Montgomery County, the council can pass an ordinance mandating that it's always downhill both ways.

I went to elementary > junior > high school in MoCo. They saved the busses for kids who had miles to go. The rest of us hoofed it or rode bicycles. Now there are kids taking a bus less than half a mile. It's preposterous.

I didn’t ride a bus until HS. The walk to middle school was 1.4 miles and took about a half hour each way. Mom worked so there were no rides to school. If you wanted a shorter commute you rode your bike or skate board.

The few times I missed the bus in HS my Dads reply was, start walking.
