Regina students no longer bussed by Iowa City

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Iowa City school board has voted to stop bussing students from Regina Catholic Schools.

According to our coverage partners at the Iowa City Press Citizen, the vote was six to one at last night's board meeting.

Iowa City Superintendent Lane Plugge recommended either giving Regina families the reimbursement money Iowa City gets from the state for busing the private school students or giving the money directly to Regina for the school to use for transportation services.

The board said they were forced to make the decision to save money, as the district is working to cut 6 million dollars from its budget.
