Asked by Maria Salsman, Galesburg, IL Tue Apr 7, 2009

Hi. I am part of a group of students working a math modeling problem (school busing) for Monmouth College. We have chosen United School District #304 as our model. We are trying to be as realistic as possible, therefore we could use some help with some numbers, if you are able.
How many square miles does the district cover?
How do you figure where the central location is?
How many stops are there are the bus routes?
How far are the students required to walk to catch the bus?
What times do the schools start? We found elementary to be 8:15.
What is the annual budget fro transportation?
We had the bus driver being paid/day. Is that realistic?
Two of us are future math teachers. Do you have any information on pay scale or possible openings? (This is just a side note and does not pertain to this class).
Thank you for any help you can provide.
