Judge: Franklin Township doesn’t have to provide bus service

Franklin Township Community Schools does not have to provide bus service, a judge ruled this week.

The judge said the district is not required by state law to provide bus service.

A group of parents sued the district last year after it stopped busing their children to school and used a third-party contractor who started charging families.

The district has since restored free bus service.

The parents said they plan to appeal the ruling.
