With declining enrollment an issue with most county school systems, bickering continues over whether school buses can cross county lines to pick up students.

The State Supreme Court has agreed to review the dispute.

The Legislature sort of dealt with the issue last session, allowing such transfers if both school boards agreed. If they didn't the school superintendent would make the final decision.

A Marion County lawyer is asking the court to make a decision. The dispute involves 100 Taylor County students who attend Marion County schools. Forty of the students do not have the approval of the Taylor County system.

Taylor County Schools are saying it is costing them $500,000 a year loss in enrollment based funding.

The court's decision could further affect the shifting of students from one county to another around the state.
