Is the plan designed to end all bussing in MPS?

No. The state legislation that outlined the Neighborhood Schools Initiative did not intend to end all bussing in the City of Milwaukee. Of the nearly 160 schools in MPS, the plan focuses on only the 28 most overcrowded elementary attendance areas. The Legislature directed MPS to examine its options for : Reducing the $58.1 million that MPS spent to transport more than 70,000 children each day during the 1999 school year. Providing neighborhood school seats for children in grades K-8 who live in those areas where existing school capacity is most out of balance with the number of school-aged residents. Parents also have the option of enrolling their children in any MPS school in the district provided that they transport their child themselves.
