New Hanover County schools' budget cuts for next year include putting the brakes on some transportation options. The school board adopted the budget for the 2009-2010 school year. It reduces the transportation budget by more than $800,000. Early college high school students will now have to ride their district buses and be shuttled to their early colleges.
