I am writing to ask you to vote against restoring the Chamblee Middle/Coralwood shuttle. At a time when we are asking everyone to tighten their belts, it would be destructive to agree to spend $17,000 to minimize inconvenience for a few. There are hundreds of parents who would gladly drive their kids door-to-door for the opportunity to attend Chamblee Middle. Certainly driving a few extra miles to Henderson Middle to take the existing shuttle is reasonable and fair. Parents were notified before the start of school that they would be provided transportation to Chamblee from Henderson Middle. They have now had ample time to adjust to the new plan and always have the option of driving their child all the way.
Thank you for your consideration
