Beggs Schools received two grants from the Department of Environmental Quality to purchase two new buses. The grants covered 1/2 the cost of each bus.
All BPS bus drivers have received training on EPA guidelines on bus idling, and the district has adopted a no idling policy in order to reduce the amount of emissions that are transferred into the air.
This is all a part of the district's move into going green and promoting environmentally friendly ideas.
