Students to undergo weigh-ins, measuring for bus securement rule


HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — Schools here will begin weighing and measuring elementary students in January to determine if they need to be secured in a child restraint system on their school bus, The Chronicle Herald reports.

The transportation coordinator for the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board, where the systems are already installed in school buses, told the newspaper that they’re easy to use since they’re built into the buses and can be flipped up when not in use.
