SCARSDALE, N.Y. – A proposed expansion of the Scarsdale school busing policy was voted down during the Board of Education meeting on Dec. 14, according to Scarsdale10538.com.
The proposal would have expanded the busing program to include transporting students who live 1.2 miles from their school, instead of the current 1.5 miles, the report said.
Increased costs and more traffic were cited as two reasons the proposal was turned down, reported Scarsdale10538.com.
Any proposal to expand busing would also be subject to a local referendum as well, the report said.
