Brunswick Schools to Keep Combined Bus Routes

BOLIVIA -- The Brunswick County School System will keep combined bus routes, despite complaints from several parents.

Students at Shallotte Middle School have been riding on the same buses as students at West Brunswick High School since the beginning of the school year.

Some parents said this has led to more fights and overcrowding on the buses.

School officials said they would keep the plan, because it is already workin at South Brunswick Middle and High schools.

School district officials said they might look to add more buses to their fleet next fall.
