Franklin School Board Votes To Defend Busing Suit

Franklin Township schools imposed a $475 per student busing fee this year.

Franklin Township will defend its controversial busing fees in court. In a vote of 3-2, the school board voted to go ahead with litigation to defend the district against a suit filed seeking class-action status.

The school district partnered this year with the Central Indiana Educational Service Center to offer bus service at a cost of $475 per child. Some parents say the district is fighting an uphill battle. Franklin Township Superintendent Walter Bourke said the courts can decide the issue.
