I have hears that at Redlands High School, the buses are being cut for security to get more of those "scooters." Also, an article spoke of the principal not being sure on what to spend the remaining school budget. That's right, I think there is actually a surplus, which can be clearly used for new bathrooms

Redlands High is very over-crowded, doesn't have nearly enough parking for their students, the traffic in the area is destroying all the neighborhood streets...and they could care less.

Instead of raising money for things they NEED, they built a football field. What great leadership that shows from the school and district....idiots.

To be honest, RHS is not really that crowded. The administration just does not spread the students out correctly in their classrooms. Redlands East Valley is actually more packed.

The kids need the exercise. It will be good for their IQ and their waistline and their behavior.

May be once a kid gets hit crossing Lugonia to get to school they will reconsider... I have paid for the bus service for my children ($400.00) for the past three years and now I will have to take my lunch every day to drive 30 minutes to pick them up and ensure their safety home. They need to get an Omnitrans bus stop by REV!

Maybe if parants really loved their kids they would drive their kids to school for their safety. A lot of parants want to blame someone else for their own responsibilities.

Its a sad day for America when we have to compromise our childrens education. Now if any of these kids miss school the parents (or skip because they are on public transportation & no one is making sure they get to school on time) can count on a fine from the SARB committee.

Whatever happened to parents being responsible for their own kids? I work at a school and its quite disturbing how much the role of parenting has been taken over by the schools. We already provide free breakfast and lunch. We have free before school programs (babysitting) and after school programs (more babysitting). So there are some kids who get dropped off at 7:00 in the morning and then stay until 6:00 at night. And alot of parents are even late in picking up their orphans, I mean kids. It's not our job!!!!!!!!!

I have been driving my children to school for 8 years now. What is the percentage of students on bus to the overall attendance at school? This issue is being overblown. If parents are interested in kids education, shouldn't they be involved too, more than complaining about what is not available? We all know the hardship the district suffers to budget cuts and we have to be practical about it.

Wow! How about they send kids to the schools where they live instead of bus kids all over creation to try and "diversify" our schools. The greatest generation of americans walked to school (some say barefoot and uphill both ways)! Kids are now fat, lazy and a good walk in the morning would do their cognitive abilities some good!

Redlands schools are so crappy anyway that the kids can't get into competitive universities. Doesn't matter if they walk or ride, they're going to end up at Crafton to learn serving skills for Starbucks.

Cannon and get them in shape, East Highlands dosn't have a High School. Either they go to Redlands or to San bernardino High Schools. The people in East Highlands pay like 2% for Property tax you would think that the city could build them a High School.

Redlands High has lots of certificated upper managment staff, to many vice principals. Lets start laying off the over crowded managers that work at the Redlands School District. Redlands school are past there glory days. The schools are almost as bad as San Bernardino.

Ever heard of a "bicycle" ?

Everybody rode bicycles to school when we were kids. Now, nobody does.

Don't whine about the busses, get on a damn bike!

Walk, bike, carpool, city bus, drive your kids... geez, 5 options. Just like the cafeteria at school! Whatever happened to 1 choice...take-it-or-leave-it!
If trimming bussing helps save teachers jobs then park the busses!

Wow,
What a bunch foul, angry commenters. "Biotches"? That's quite the grown up term, and constructive as well. I guess none of you either have kids or live in Redlands, so it's ok to run your ignorant mouths about stupid.

Why not just charge to ride the bus like Rim School District? It costs us $150 a year to bus our kid just over two miles.
