MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — The Muncie Community School board is expected to vote Tuesday to notify the Indiana Department of Education that it intends to cancel busing in three years.

The state requires schools to notify the department and their local communities three years in advance of canceling busing. It doesn’t necessarily mean the Muncie schools will cut busing in July 2018.

The Star Press reports the school board released a statement Friday saying it and the administration recognize the problems that cutting busing would cause, and they hope to avoid it.

The Muncie schools would become the fourth Indiana district to send such notification since the state made the option available in 2012. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
