Culver Community Schools’ bus drivers are getting a raise. Superintendent Karen Shuman says the increase in the daily wage was approved by the school board Monday.
“Before, our bus drivers were at a $65 rate, and we increased them to an $80 rate,” she explains.
The Culver Community School Board adopted the 2018 budget when they met Monday evening. Superintendent Karen Shuman stated that their budget is in line with their enrollment and all accounts are in good standing.
Superintendent Shuman also said their taxation will remain status quo and representatives of the school corporation are hoping that the new housing being developed in the community will boost enrollment which would increase revenue and allow for the school to offer more programs to Culver Community students.<!–more–>
