The Eastern Pulaski School Board approved an increase in the bus driver electric usage stipend.
Superintendent Dr. Robert Klitzman explained that every year the bus drivers are required to plug in their buses during the wintertime and it’s been a custom every year to give those drivers a little stipend to offset that cost.
Last year’s stipend was $150 per driver and Klitzman requested $155 as a payment this year. The board unanimously approved the increase.
The stipend will be good for two years.
Klitzman also reported that the two new buses the board purchased have come in and they are out on the roads transporting students.
