Zone approved, officials now looking at sources for funding
Superintendent Bob Mansell related during the Nov. 16 Winslow School District Governing Board meeting that the Bonnie Brennan off-street bus loading zone was approved by the city, and that there is a possibility of obtaining grant funding under a new federal law, "Safe Routes to School," which was passed by Congress.
Mansell noted that the law had not been implemented yet, but that the state was slated to select an administrator by the end of December. He added that he would continue to monitor the progress to determine whether the district should apply for funding, or start the project on its own.
