Lucie Carrière, l’une des employés de la LCBO Hawkesbury, tient une boîte d’emballage nouvellement redécoré pour les clients avec des commandes importantes. L’affiche est l’une des centaines créées par des élèves des écoles locales pour le programme CARS, pour rappeler aux adultes de ne pas conduire avec les facultés affaiblies. Le Comité d’action régionale pour la sécurité a étendu ses paramètres annuels de campagne pour inclure une mise en garde contre les textos et tout autre comportement pouvant détourner l’attention du conducteur des conditions de la circulation. -photo Gregg Chamberlain Les étudiants offrent des conseils $0--&$5 * 7 * 5 r  $0..6/ * 5: School bus report For many students in rural school districts, going to school means riding the bus. Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) is a consortium of bus companies that provides transport services for the school districts in the region. The STEO’s latest annual report, covering the 2014-2015 term, noted that 18 per cent of buses operated through the consortium are doing double runs, and the average ride time for students on buses in Eastern Ontario is just under 25 minutes. STEO ride time statistics indicate that about two per cent of students may be on a school bus for more than 60 minutes each day, depending on a variety of factors for those individual students. The consortium has reduced the total amount of kilometres travelled for all of its buses from 122,488 kilometres in 2011- 2012 to 111,588 in 2014-2015. STEO is working strategies to further reduce student travel time and also enhance student security during bus rides, including looking into the feasibility of installing GPS/video monitoring systems on all STEO buses. – Gregg Chamberlain Break on user fees Champlain Township will lower some of its user fees, and that means good news for school winter recreation programs and also for the summer tour- ism trade. Township council approved changes to the user fee bylaw, replacing part of the user fee schedule with an amended version that features lower rates for school ice rental at the Vankleek Hill Arena, and reductions in some of the user fees at the municipal L’Orignal Park camping site. School ice fees will drop from $64 this fall to $50 while the changes to the municipal camping site user fees will vary depending on the services. The change to the park camping fees will help encourage more visitor use of the site with potential spinoff for local merchants. Administration reports that the changes to the user fee structure will have no financial impact on overall municipal budget planning. – Gregg Chamberlain eLearning program grows More students at Upper Canada district schools are doing part of their classwork studies in cyberspace as part of their regular career curriculum work. Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) trustee reviewed a progress report on the district’s eLearning program during their April 13 session. More than 900 UCDSB students are using eLearning in school compared to 289 when the program began during the 2008-2009 term. – Gregg Chamberlain
