RACINE — Six Racine elementary schools will continue to start one or two hours late come fall because of bus issues.

After about two hours of discussion, the Racine Unified School Board made the decision in a 5-4 vote during a special meeting Monday night.

Parents, staff and board members expressed frustration.

"I think that as a parent, what stands out most to me is these late start times, and the children and families who are most disadvantaged," said board member Auntavia Jackson.

"I literally had to go in line at pick-up and drop-off with handmade fliers to tell parents that this vote was happening," said parent Tamara Patton.
