SHARING SERVICES ADDS UP TO SAVINGS
The district shares the services of Transportation Director, Lisa Shirkey with Riverside Local and Perry Local Schools. The shared service model has saved our district approximately $130,000 per year. The district also saves money on fuel due to the bulk purchase of fuel with Riverside.
