New bus routes available for traditional calendar schools on August 18

New bus routes available for traditional calendar schools on August 18

New bus routes for the 2014-15 school year will be available online August 18 for WCPSS traditional calendar schools. The bus routes will be shared at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/routes-and-stops.html the week before the new school year begins.

Families should check the bus routes to find the stop closest to their address. Each year, bus stops change based on the students who ride the route. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

New practices
This school year for the first time, WCPSS Transportation has a team of routing specialists who will work to provide eligible riders safe and timely bus service.

They will base routes on families who used bus service last year or families who signed up to ride the bus for 2014-15. In the past, transportation plans assumed all students would ride the bus. Of the 153,000 students last year, 76,000 were bus riders.

Beginning the planning process with accurate ridership will help Transportation planners provide superior bus routing. This should provide families better bus service from the start of the school year. Routes for known riders will be set for the first day of school. Bus drivers will practice set routes to be ready for the first day of school. With superior routing, buses will travel less distance saving money on fuel and maintenance.

Alternate stops
Students eligible for bus service are assigned a stop this school year based on their home address of record. If families need an alternate stop for before- or after-school care, they may request that online at www.wcpss.net/busrequest.

Transportation will evaluate these requests to determine if the alternate stop fits on an existing bus route and that space is available on the bus to accommodate the student. WCPSS does not add bus stops during the first 30 days of school.

Students who were approved as voluntary transfers for 2013-14 and received transportation for the year may apply online to seek bus service for 2014-15. The request will be reviewed to determine if it falls on the existing route of a bus with available space and does not significantly affect other students’ ride time.

Special needs students
Families of children who are homeless, have Individual Education Plans (IEPs), or have plans under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) may need to request special transportation, as they move into the community or change address. These families will need to enroll their child in the new school or notify their current school of the address change and inform school staff of their child’s IEP, 504 plan or homeless status. Students will be assigned to transportation.

After the first 30 days of school, bus drivers will monitor ridership. Transportation will drop the bus stop for students who do not use the bus for 10 consecutive school days. Families only need to apply for students to receive service again.

The goal of this practice is to improve the service for those that consistently ride the bus.

College Application Personal Essay Review and Tutoring

Sponsored by the SHS Academic Booster Club – Free to students

Improve your college application essay in a 15- or 10-minute, one-on-one tutoring session

Many colleges require personal essays on their applications.  An engaging, strong essay can mean the difference between college acceptance and rejection.  Getting started early on the application process, especially in the crafting of thoughtful and polished essays, will improve the chance of submitting an excellent, competitive application.

Dr. Jane Elkins, a published writer, tutor, former college teacher (UNC-CH, Davidson, Meredith), and SHS parent, will diagnose your essay’s strengths and weaknesses and will advise you on fine-tuning its content, structure, and style in a 15- or 10 minute one-on-one tutoring session (depending on when you sign up – the earlier you sign up the longer your session; September sessions will be 15 minutes, October sessions will be 10 minutes).  Dr. Elkins is also offering group workshops on Tuesday, September 2nd at 2:30 p.m. and on Friday, September 5, during smart lunch (10:45 a.m.).

Limited time slots are available, and the process is as follows:

  • Sign-up for only one slot, beginning August 20th (at walk the schedule), on the schedule posted outside Mrs. Bradford’s room (231).
  • Sign-up for only one:  one hour workshop on September 2 at 2:30 p.m. or on September 5, during smart lunch (10:45 a.m.).
  • Four 15-minute time slots are available after school on 9/15, 9/16, 9/22, 9/23, 9/29 and 9/30 (room 231)
  • Six 10-minute time slots are available after school (room231) and in the evening (Media Center) on 10/6 and 10/7.
  • Pick up “The Personal Essay Suggestions” and “Reminders” hand-outs to get started.
  • Go to the college or the “Common App” website and choose an essay prompt.
  • Draft a personal essay/statement.  Email the draft to Dr. Elkins directly at janelkin@bellsouth.net using a double-spaced document (MSWord or Macintosh Pages) or including it in the actual email.  Be sure to provide the prompt.  Send no later than 24 hours before your appointment; however, there will be more time for her to review if you send it further in advance.
  • Dr. Elkins will send a reply that she received the essay.  If you send it after 9:30pm, then you will receive a reply the next morning.  If you do not receive a reply from her, please bring a hard copy to your appointment.

Questions or concerns may be directed to Jill Priester at jpriester@nc.rr.com or 919-880-1763.
