Research: School bus ridership reduces absenteeism
from THE Journal
A recent research project uncovered a tie between kindergartners who ride the school bus and lower absenteeism. Those students are also less likely to be "chronically absent" (defined as missing more than 10 days during the school year) than students who arrive in any other way. The findings, which examined data from the 2010-2011 school year, could influence decision-making in districts that are currently considering cutting or restricting bus service as a cost-savings maneuver.
