School Desegregation and Busing: Guidelines for Transportation Administrators.
Olitt, Ray; Malmstrom, Dorothy
Efforts to break down de facto school segregation, which usually reflects residential patterns, often involve busing some students to schools outside their neighborhoods. Although busing has decreased segregation, it has sometimes created problems of its own. Transportation administrators, interviewed in Riverside, Sacramento, Berkeley, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Sausalito, California during the Spring of 1969, indicated several steps a school district can take to facilitate the establishment of a busing program. In this paper, the recommendations made in these interviews are summarized. In the discussion on establishing routes and schedules, such topics as scheduling after school transportation and computerized routing are included. Also, acquiring buses and student discipline procedures are discussed. It is suggested that consultants' advice be sought before busing is established, and that the chief administrator be carefully chosen. (Authors/JW)
