New Buses Delivered to Wayland Union Schools PDF Print E-mail

Wayland Union Schools purchased six new buses which were delivered this week to the Transportation Building.

The cost to purchase the buses was $165,000 over a three year period using $43,000/year from the general fund and $122,000/year from the casino fund. Additional buses were needed to replace aging buses and to alleviate overcrowding.

The 77 passenger buses are equipped with a Pro-Vision camera system with HD, improved gear ratios for fuel economy, and automatic idle shut off.   The buses have two additional side emergency exit windows compared to two on previous models and two roof hatches.  They also have a seven year warranty.

Host An Exchange Student PDF Print E-mail


Youth for Understanding (YFU) seeks host families for some high school exchange students for the 2015-16 school year, as soon as possible.

Many different kinds of families can host -- you don't need to have high school age kids -- just the ability to be a good parent for a high school student, and to open your heart to a child. Students stay through June. They bring their own spending money and health insurance and can share a room with a host sibling.

If you can’t host this year, we have openings for volunteers who enjoy teens and can support students with monthly contact and learn about other cultures in the process.  We also have scholarships for American students to study abroad.
