In May 2006, all school districts were asked to complete and return a survey on fuel costs, consumption and the districtís level of interest in the possibility of multiple state contracts for the purchase of diesel, bio-diesel and gasoline.
The Division of Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation (DPSAFT) received 211 responses. A total of 166 school districts indicated an interest in pursuing the multiple state contracts for fuel.
DPSAFT will establish a committee comprised of administrators and transportation personnel to research and formulate a plan to pursue these contracts in a timely manner.
Attached is a compilation of the data reported.
