Residents and parents of the Jim Thorpe Area School District (JTASD) have voiced their concerns regarding the possibility of losing monitors on the district buses.
The issue was brought up at this week's school board meeting by area resident Joe Partenio.
"Due to budget constraints monitor positions have been reduced," Partenio said.
A petition with 450 signatures was presented by Partenio.
"We present this petition to the board to fervently consider the voice of the people and keep the monitors on our school buses," he said.
