STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Starkville school district officials say they have worked out a variety of problems in the transportation system a year after hiring an assistant superintendent to deal with the issues.
Assistant Superintendent Toriano Holloway told the district board this past week that the system is now transporting more than 2,800 students each day, an increase of 560 children from a year ago.
The Commercial Dispatch reports bus routes have been realigned to transport mostly children in a similar age range.
Holloway says this change has reduced discipline issues and encouraged parents to let their children ride the buses.
