Gentile Offers Parents Help with Busing Problems
Parents' complaints have included buses arriving too late for school and kids being forced to walk as many as 15 blocks from their assigned stops.
Gentile is urging parents in his district to bring their school busing complaints to his office, promising the office will try to solve them. The more parents who come forward, he said, the more ammo the City Council will have in the upcoming DOE hearing.
Gentile said his staff was actively working with a responsive DOE to get parents' busing problems fixed.
His district office is at 8703 3rd Avenue and is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM til 5:30 PM.
The office is also available by phone at (718) 748-5200 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
