The Einstein Charter Board meets Tuesday, April 9 at 6 p.m.
According to a letter posted to the Einstein community by CEO McKenzie, Scholars First will assist A & S Transportation with assuming all responsibilities for bus service between April 9 to the 16th. CEO McKenzie said he and top administrators at the charter school network will ride the new bus system with students on April 17. A smartphone app is being provided by A & S Transportation to parents to track the route by GPS.
CEO McKenzie was hired to direct the charter school network of four schools after a contract had been signed with Scholars First for the 2018-2019 school year. He said he hopes this action will “shift the negative conversation from yellow buses to our amazing parents, awesome partners, student growth, college readiness, social-emotional development, arts, and extracurriculars.”
He further stated this decision puts students, parents and teachers first. CEO McKenzie will be hosting a coffee with the charter school community on Wednesday, April 10, 7:30 a.m. at Einstein High/Sarah T. Reed, 5316 Michoud Blvd.
