The GFW School Board has been in the process of redoing its transportation department to make it more efficient and safer. On July 19 the School Board approved a purchase of the Pro Vision Camera System that featured four cameras per bus with Wifi download and solid state drive at the cost of $32,832. At the May board meeting, the Center for Efficient School Operations (CESO) was hired to reroute the busses, using a GPS system. At that time the topic of cameras was discussed as a safety measure and a way to handle problems that may occur. On July 19 Greg Johnson of CESO presented a product comparison of four systems. (Johnson and his wife Ella ran Sisters Cafe in Winthrop a few years ago).
