Bronx mom claims daughter's school bus has been a no show
A Bronx mom says her daughter has missed three days of school because the bus did not show up.
Conchita Holliday says she registered her daughter, Ebone, for a new school on Monday under the No Child Left Behind Act. That act allows parents to move their kids out of failing schools. But it is now Wednesday and she says her daughter has still not been assigned a school bus preventing her from getting to school. Holliday does not have a car.
Marty Oestreicher, chief executive director of pupil transportation, told News 12 The Bronx that it would be a couple of days before a bus route is established, but added that an emergecny bus should be there to pick Ebone up.
The Office of Pupil Transportation is now investigating the matter.
