Supporters of school buses urged to attend meeting

Advertiser Staff

The state Board of Education will discuss cutbacks to school bus transportation tomorrow.

Opponents of cutting school buses are urging people to attend the meeting.

"We urge parents, students, community leaders, legislators and interested parties who want to keep the school transportation system running to attend," said Shawn Ching of the Students First Save Our School Buses Coalition. "In fact, this may be the one and only time you will have an opportunity to provide input to the proposal."

The BOE Committee on Budget and Fiscal Accountability will take up the bus transportation issue.

The meeting starts at 3 p.m. at the Queen Lili'uokalani Building, 1390 Miller St., room 404.
