Some students in the Galt Joint Union Elementary School District will receive morning bus transportation after all.
Last month, trustees eliminated all but the rural routes due to budget cuts.
On Wednesday, the board approved to support "fully filling" two rural buses that will drop students off at two west-side elementary schools, according to Superintendent Karen Schauer.
The 60 available spaces for middle school student morning-only transportation will be filled by a lottery process. This will not add any cost to what the board approved at the June meeting, Schauer said.
Those not chosen in the lottery process will be placed on a waiting list.
"Should there be additional funding ... the board could consider increasing transportation services," Schauer added.
In other action Wednesday, the board approved a memorandum of understanding with the city and the Galt Joint Union High School District to provide afterschool programs at elementary school sites.
Trustees also approved a 5-cent increase to both elementary and middle school cafeteria lunch prices. The new prices will be $1.60 and $1.85, respectively.
