Those who have been wondering what the Mt. Diablo school district is doing to remedy its problems with special education busing could get some answers tonight.
During the monthly special education Community Advisory Committee meeting, transportation service coordinator Angie Goakey is slated to present a transportation update. Last month, a scheduled transportation update by Jeff McDaniel, director of Maintenance and Operations, was postponed due to his sudden medical leave of absence.
Here is the agenda for tonight’s meeting, which is open to the public:

DON’T FORGET – - BRING A FRIEND TO THE MEETING!!”
Last week, I continued to hear from parents who were not satisfied with the district’s transportation of their special education students.
Do you believe the district is doing all it can to remedy special education transportation problems?
