MEGHAN SCHILLER: Hey, it's Meghan with KDKA. And coming up tonight at 6:00, there's a bunch of lawyers fighting over a school district and school bus company dispute. But the parents tell me they feel like they're the ones that are losing out. They could just send their little child out to wait for the school bus. But now they're having to drive their kids or walk their kids to school and pick them up at the end of the day.

South Allegheny School District is back four days a week. They are still offering that remote learning opportunity. But parents say this is just one more thing to add to the list.

We're talking with lawyers on both sides about why the contracts up for dispute. Should the bus company be paid for the services under the contract? Or school districts be able to say, well, things are different this year. And we don't have as many kids going to school or riding the bus. We want to renegotiate.

Now the lawyers are involved. We're going back and forth. And the contract has now been terminated. Over $800,000 of alleged unpaid money. The full story tonight at 6:00 in what parents say they want to see happen.
