OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Oak Ridge School Board members met Monday to find a solution to a bus route change that's left dozens of Linden Elementary students without transportation for after school activities.
In years past, the school's bussed to Boys and Girls Club as well as Girls Inc. even though both are outside of the school's zone.
After a parent complained that her child arrived home late, the district revisited the plan and realized busing to locations outside the zone was against policy.
The district and representatives from both non-profits have met to find a solution.
Girls Inc. is taking care of transportation for its after school kids, but Boys and Girls Club said it doesn't have the resources.
"We hope that we have an opportunity for our kids to get back here to the club in a way that's cost effective for us if that's what it came down to, but also with a way that the school system is comfortable with. We understand they serve a whole community," said Boys and Girls Club Director Donyell Jones.
