Dozens of Frum Residents Request Jackson BOE Inform Parents of Busing Availability Earlier in the Year [VIDEO] | G. Sonnenfeld

Over three dozen frum Jackson residents attended a Jackson Township Board of Education meeting Wednesday evening, with the residents requesting for changes to the BOE’s policy of informing parents about busing available to their children.

Specifically, the parents requested that the Board of Education inform parents earlier in the year whether they will have busing for their children in the coming school. Until now, the BOE told parents on August 1st what the busing situation was, and with schools often starting less than a month afterwards, many parents are left with few options to ensure that their children have transportation to their schools in the new year.

BOE member Scott Sargent was extremely receptive of the parents’ request and committed to working towards informing parents earlier in the year whether busing will be available to their children.
