West New York parents held a protest that spanned between the town hall and the board of education building, pleading to get a new bus route for students that have been transferred from Harry L. Bain Elementary School to St. Joseph of the Palisades school (5401 Broadway).Â
Superintendent of Schools John Fauta told Hudson County View the idea is borderline impossible.
Mayoral hopeful Carlos â€œChuckyâ€ Betancourt supported and marched behind the parents on this issue, telling Hudson County View that the board of education has a lot to answer for on this issue.
Fauta told a different story, stating that this change for the upcoming school year was announced to parents back in February.
Furthermore, he explained that between the current BOE budget and state statutes, it would be essentially impossible to introduce a new bus into the school district.
