RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Attempts by parents of students who attend private schools to have the bus changes in the Ramapo Central School District reversed on a temporary basis have been denied by the state, according to lohud.com.
The new transportation policy was enacted last week in the district, reported lohud.com.
The group wanted the changes because it believes alternatives that impact a lot of students were not explored, said the lohud.comreport.
The stay was requested until MaryEllen Elia, New York's education commissioner, could rule on the group's appeal to the changes, said lohud.com.
Elia made a decision Friday opposing the reversal, a state Education Department spokesman told lohud.com.
There is still going to be a review of the appeal, said the lohud.com.
The district rolled out the transportation changes in July.
