The 176 Henrico school buses that have been purchased since March 2011 will be fixed during the summer, Henrico Schools spokesman Andy Jenks told the Citizen. The bus manufacturers will retrofit the buses at no cost to the school division, he said.

The brake interlock device is required on all automatic transmission buses in Virginia that were purchased after March 2011, which is when the device was added to the state Board of Education's requirements for school buses. As many as 4,000 school buses in the state may be affected, according to the Virginia Department of Education.

The school currently is at 116 percent of its intended capacity. The plan would take effect this fall and apply to rising sixth-graders.

Citizens would have an opportunity to comment on the proposal during a Mar. 16 public hearing at an as-yet undecided location. The board likely would approve new boundaries for Hungary Creek at its Mar. 23 meeting.
