LEHIGHTON, Pa. — A school district in Carbon County is facing some tough choices.

The Lehighton School Board voted Monday night on a final budget for next year.

Part of the spending plan calls for the district to eliminate all non mandated transportation, which means eliminating school buses.

Board members in Lehighton say they will keep looking for more funds for transportation before kids go back to school.
