Cleaner Air School Buses
Congratulations to Southwest Local School District and Forest Hills School District for receiving Diesel Emission Reduction Grants (DERG) from Ohio EPA and Ohio Department of Transportation. Forest Hills will be able to purchase 11 propane-powered school buses and Southwest Local will purchase four diesel-powered school buses. Combined, the districts will replace 15 older school buses with cleaner buses which emit less air pollutants.
The next DERG grant application cycle will take place in the fall of 2017.
