Van Delivery Changes This Fall
Beginning the week of August 15th, the Mississippi Bend AEA will deliver once-a- week to a single drop off location at every district.
This decision is based upon van delivery data and a decline in checkout of media materials, coupled with current legislative cuts. Over the past three years, the checkout of media materials has decreased by 15% and the number of items delivered via van mail has decreased by 19.5%. In addition, almost 19% of all van delivery stops last year were stops where nothing was delivered or picked up.
We will continue to deliver VAST science kits, AEA furniture directly to buildings and will be evaluating the delivery of other over-sized items such as wheelchairs & Star Lab. We believe that this change will be a more efficient use of our resources. Please assist us with your understanding and patience as we make this transition. The van routes for 2016-2017 are provided with the following link.
