The District was recently made aware of a grant opportunity, which, if we are awarded the grant, will provide nearly all of the funding for a new school bus. The Rural School Bus Pilot Project grant sponsors are North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District in conjunction with the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The goal of the grant is to remove from service those older school buses that emit as much as twice the pollution per mile as a semi-truck, and consequently increase the respiratory health risks for students.


The bus to be replaced has been in service for 22 years. The grant could fund up to $165,000 of the approximate $172,500 replacement bus cost.


Resolution #2020-07 is presented for Board adoption to authorize moving forward with the grant application process and intent to purchase a replacement bus if the grant is awarded to the Cascade Union Elementary School District.
