The Tamaqua Area School District will make changes to a few rural school bus runs but the net effect will not result in cost savings.
According to details reviewed at Tuesday's school board finance committee meeting, bus No. 35's afternoon West Penn Elementary School run will be eliminated, with stops added to busses 16, 28 and 38.
"We'll eliminate a bus run in West Penn," said Connie Ligenza, business manager. "The stops have been reallocated."
According to Carol Makuta, superintendent, the change is necessary because the bus in question was running late.
