All school buses built after 2005 are now required to use an 8-light signaling system to alert drivers on the road the intentions of the bus driver.

The law that passed yesterday (August 16) makes Wisconsin the final state in the union to join the system.

Eleven students aboard a school bus in Aitkin County held on for a scary ride Wednesday as the driver of the bus suffered a medical emergency. The bus swerved wildly at between 35 and 40 miles per hour as it traveled northbound on Highway 47 after leaving the school in Isle.
When the weather forecast takes a turn for the worst in the winter, parents of school-age children know what question follows: "Will we have school tomorrow"? Sometimes the answer to that question is an easy "no" but often there are other factors at work that make it a difficult one to determine for school administrators.
