Bus transportation will be provided for students whose parents or guardians, due to work schedules, cannot pick up their children during the hour between 5:00 and 6:00.

The director will hire directly the two people who will work at the district office: the assistant program director and the administrative assistant. The program director also will directly hire the five full-time site directors. The position requirements for site director can be seen in the key personnel section of this proposal.
