Does A School District Have To Bus Children to Both Homes?

Many divorced or separated parents struggle with the issue of school transportation for their children. We take the pressure off of your PA divorce case but when it comes to school transportation – here is what the ruling says. One recent decision by Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Court regarding a Lancaster County case addressed the issue head on ruling that the Manheim Township School District must provide transportation to both parents’ homes. Some of the factors influencing the Court’s decision in this case may limit the application of this ruling in other cases. Significant in the Court’s decision were the fact that there were empty seats on the bus, the district didn’t have to create a new bus stop and that the child spent equal time at each of his parent’s homes. You can read more about this case in this article from PennLive.com.
