The Culver Community School Board, in accordance with their 12-year rotation schedule, have accepted a bid from Midwest Transit to purchase two typical route school buses.
The Culver Community School Board gave their approval two weeks ago for the school to advertise for the purchase of two new school buses. Superintendent Brad Schuldt explained that this process is generally taken care of in the spring to allow the school to purchase two new buses over the summer.
Schuldt said the state currently has Culver schools on a 12-year service cycle for buses, allowing the school to purchase new buses to replace those that are 12 years old. Schuldt said that unless some catastrophic failure occurs, the buses are traded in after 12 years for credit on a new school bus, preventing the school from getting stuck with a massive unexpected bill for emergency repairs on several buses.
