 In an attempt to save money, Mount Pleasant school officials are looking to privatize the district’s custodial and transportation services.

Board of Education members are considering a contract with Grand Rapids Building Services for janitorial services and First Student, a national transportation provider that operates more that 60,000 buses, Superintendent Joe Pius said.
