Dr. Fonder explained the mission of the school district and its commitment and passion for all

“Our bus drivers are a vital part of our school district in Bridgewater-Raritan. We are proud to
have a new contract that demonstrates how much the Board of Education, administration, and
the larger community values and appreciates our bus drivers. Bridgewater-Raritan is a great
place to be for teachers as well as for other staff members who work with our students,” Dr. Fonder said.

He concluded.

“We look forward to our returning BRRSD bus drivers and our new bus drivers earning a great
salary as part of the new collective bargaining agreement approved by the Board of Education
on April 30, and in effect beginning July 1."
