Voters approve dissolving Dallas County Schools bus agency

It appears that voters will force the end of Dallas County Schools, the bus agency that provides services for several districts.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, 42,278902 (about 58 percent of the vote) people voted against Dallas County Schools Proposition A and want to dissolve the agency. About 43 percent of voters are for keeping the bus service. 

Once the agency is dissolved, each school district will have to manage their own bus service or hire a private company for kids to continue to be picked up this school year. State Senator Don Huffines says a solution committee would be formed.

The bus agency lost $50 million in a business venture involving onboard cameras and was also involved in a questionable land deal.

Senator Huffines is leading the effort against DCS. He held a watch party Tuesday night for the vote and created a political action committee called 'Protect Dallas Kids' to raise money for the effort to abolish the bus system.

The senator is also calling for three board members to resign.
