The Lee County school board is waiting for a consultant's report on ways to lower the cost of getting students to class in the morning.
A Department of Education report says the district's total transportation expenses are $250 more per student than the state average.
Board Member Bob Chilmonik is suggesting the district end school choice and return to neighborhood schools.
Superintendent Dr. James Browder says the savings from neighborhood schools is only $6 to $8 million per year. He says that's not enough for him to spend 2 years and 200 meetings drawing boundaries and changing the schools of 52,000 students immediately.
