Cameras to go on buses for safety


Brainerd school buses will soon become more safe for young riders and, in turn, may potentially lead to better student behavior on the bus.

The Brainerd School Board Monday approved the transportation contract with Reichert Bus Service for the 2011-13 school years at a total cost of about $3.5 million. This contract represents about 5 percent of the district’s total budget.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
