The vast majority of Orthodox Jewish children who attend private schools in Lakewood are still without any busing for the next school year, with the Jackson School District announcing Thursday that just 11 bus routes have been picked up by vendors for next year.
The routes picked up include 7 buses for Bais Faiga, 1 bus for Bnos Melech, 2 buses for Nachlas, and 1 bus for Shiras Chaim, according to the Jackson Pulse. Those routes can carry up to 600 students.
However, that leaves thousands of additional children in need of transportation without any means of getting to school.
The school district said it will make a final attempt to bid out the remaining bus routes and that it will notify parents by June 16th whether their children will be receiving transportation or aid in lieu.
