Electric School Bus Webinar!

December 06, 2023 1:39 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

When: Thursday, December 14, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Where: Remote via Zoom

Who: Open to all community members... Parents, high school students, school nurses, health professionals, members of civic/community groups, and others!

What: Learn how electric school buses work, what it takes to get one in your district, how to help your school district apply for funds, and success stories from midwestern communities that already have them.

What's the issue?

Outdated, diesel school buses are known to emit harmful particulate matter linked to cancers, cardiovascular, and respiratory diseases. Exhaust from diesel school buses is also linked to asthma attacks in kids. Cleaner, cost-effective electric school buses reduce these health risks and are better for our kids, environment, and over the long-term — our school districts' budgets!

What's the solution?

Minnesota communities can apply to a mix of state and federal funds, including the EPA's Clean School Bus Rebate program, which is open until Jan. 31. The next step is to register for the above info session.
