Norfolk parents will get a one-month reprieve from a new $90 bus fee while school officials determine which households are required to pay.
The fee, designed to help to close a gap in the 2009 school budget won't be implemented until Oct. 1, school officials said. That will give them a time to determine which families live less than two miles from their school and will be required to pay the new fee. According to the state, the eligibility radius is determined by measuring the distance from home to school, using the shortest route.
Any student who is riding a bus is required to register with the district and carry a pass.
