Although the district's transportation department has been operating with a quarter of a million dollar or more deficit for at least two years, Galt Joint Union Elementary School District trustees decided against charging students to ride the bus. The fee would have gone into effect come fall.

"Additional district research indicated that 85 percent of our bus riders receive free (or) reduced lunches. Given this information and a projected gross income of $14,200 by charging for transportation fees, the board could not justify the fees," Superintendent Karen Schauer said in an e-mail.
