Lne de-pan- ment of education wants a plan which will include recom- mendations ranging from bus safety to financial problems "a plan that will emphasize local autonomy. "School transportation is now of the major functions of sdicol operation. Boards will have to look st the kinds of transportation that will not only bo safe, but efficient and eco- nomical. "Regardless of cost struc- we've go; to remember we're talking about kids.'' Bardock- said. He said the provincial gov- ernment has set four guide- lines for an .Alberta policy on transportation: local autonomy, minimum government involve- ment, minimum walk limits for students and willingness on I he part of local boards to ab- sorb costs of ej-tra-curricuJar a.ctivities.
