Panama City- The new school year is officially two weeks old and Bay District School officials are still making a few adjustments.
The moves come after the typical complaints about over-crowded and over-due buses, and long lines in the cafeteria.
Bay District Schools kicked-off the 2012-2013 school year with a new privatized lunch program.
Students have complained about long-lines.
Some say they don't have enough time to eat.
District officials say, it's not just the new food service.
Tighter budgets and shorter lunch periods for some, have caused longer lunch lines than in previous years.
"At the high school level, kids used to have a longer amount of time to go off campus and eat lunch, those that did go off campus, and I think they've now opted to remain on campus," said Dr. John Haley.
Officials say, that's good news because it means more students are eating healthier lunches.
They're also adjusting lunch periods and food availability to improve lunch-time flow.
"There's always room for improvement and that's something that we are trying to prove everyday," said Dr. Haley.
It’s the same for the bus situation.
Some parents have complained about long wait times at bus-stops and over-crowded buses.
"They've had to wait long than 20 or 30 minutes for their bus to finally arrive," Haley claims.
A change in school schedules means high school and elementary students are out of class at the same time, waiting on buses.
"We didn't do this last year. High schools got out at 2:30. So this year, we have high school and elementary school getting out at the same time."
Dr. Haley says school choice also plays a role in shifting bus crowds.
"Kids could be conceivably opting to switch schools right now.”
Officials say they've already solved the lunch-room problems.
Currently they're adjusting bus schedules and routes to improve the transportation issues by Tuesday morning.
