Alabama School System To Host Forum On Bus Plans

Aug 8, 2013

A school system in suburban Birmingham is planning a forum for parents to weigh in on earlier plans to eliminate bus routes.

The Hoover school system plans the forum for 7 p.m. Thursday at Spain Park High School.

School system officials have been reconsidering some aspects of the plan after a wave of complaints by parents and school bus drivers.

Earlier, the school board had voted to eliminate bus routes for everyone but special education students beginning in August 2014 as part of a plan to save $2.5 million annually.
