MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Students in the Muncie Community Schools will have to make up the two days of classes that were canceled last month because of widespread bus transportation troubles.

District Superintendent Steve Baule tells The (Muncie) Star Press that the Indiana Department of Education denied a request for a waiver to not make up those days. Baule says the denial was expected and that the district is considering when to schedule the make-up days.

The Muncie schools canceled two days of classes after many buses ran late and some children weren’t picked up Aug. 2 for the first day of school. Officials spent days adjusting bus schedules.
