Wayland public schools will begin to charge a busing fee next year, the school committee announced Thursday.

”As part of its recommended budget, the School Committee voted to implement … $180 annual bus fee to students in grade K-6 who live 2 miles or less from their school and to all students in grades 7-12,” the school committee said in an email newsletter. “This fee structure is in line with most of our surrounding and peer districts. “

The bus fee addition means changes to the Wayland Student Transportation Policy. The full policy may be reviewed here .

Wayland residents and school parents are encouraged to provide spoken or written feedback to this new policy at meetings on March 12 and 23, which will be held at 7 p.m. in the town building.
