Why this petition matters

Started by Liz Acord

Right now, kids in grades 6th through 12th in the NCS are required to walk how ever many miles from school every day. Starting in October 2019.. Rain or shine, buses are not an option for them. Unless, they attend certain extracurricular after school activities.The High School says that schools lack the funding to provide every student with transportation. A lot of the teenager's have to walk threw drug infested streets..with prostitution and homeless people asking them for money! The weather has changed and clocks set ahead.. So this means they are walking home in the dark in the cold.  My tax dollars pay for busing and also any other tax payer in Newark. I Fear for their safety everyday. Newark City schools need to be funding student transportation to and from school. NOT JUST TO AND FROM GAMES.. Band and Sport players..that should be on the parent. The Safety of our High School and Middle School student's are in jeopardy!
