The Rochester City School District is reassuring parents that all students will have a way to get to school this fall.
On Monday the Federal Transit Administration ruled the district must stop using RTS buses to take city school kids to and from school. But Interim Superintendent Dr. William Cala says this september students will have a means to get to school. In a statement released Tuesday, Cala says "the FTA ruling will have no impact on the start of the school year, so students can plan on taking their usual methods of transportation to school, including RTS. We are making plans to address any potential impact it may have in the future, but no child who is eligible for transportation will be without it." Some 12,000 students take public buses to Rochester schools.
