DAVENPORT — Talks continue on efforts to resolve a dilemma concerning the school day schedule and bus service for Davenport’s nonpublic schools.
Administrators from Assumption High School, All Saints Catholic, John F. Kennedy Catholic, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic and Trinity Lutheran are involved in those discussions.
On June 24 the administrators met after receiving bus schedule information from the Davenport Community School District. At issue is the Davenport School Board’s decision to change start times for all schools — public and private — which impacts bus schedules. The school district provides bus service for the nonpublic schools. The school board’s decision means nonpublic schools will start later in the morning and the school day would be shorter.
Parents of students attending the nonpublic schools indicated in a survey their preference for an earlier start time.
Andy Craig, president of Assumption and the administrators’ spokesperson, said the next decision is whether or not to accept the school board’s schedule changes. Rejecting the changes would result in loss of bus service for the nonpublic schools.
He said the administrators are working on setting a date and time to meet with school board presidents and/or vice presidents to further discuss the options before them.
“We don’t want to make a bad decision.”
