Iowa district votes against transportation cuts


DAVENPORT, Iowa — Davenport Community Schools' board voted 4 to 2 on Monday against proposed transportation cuts that would have expanded walk zones, eliminated paid-conditional busing and ended bus rides to babysitters and child care facilities, the Quad-City Times reports.

The district is facing the task of cutting $3 million from its budget for next school year. Board member Nikki DeFauw voted against the cuts but said she would like to see a modified plan that would reduce transportation costs — such as alternatives for child care transportation.

Some board members said if the various cuts were brought forward again in separate motions, they might consider parts of the reduction plan.
