State directive: School districts should bus students from F, D schools

This directive, issued Tuesday in a weekly department newsletter, also instructs school districts to not wait until the state promulgates new letter grades for public schools. Since 2003, the state has published annually a list of schools obliged to provide school choice prior to the start of the new school year, but has let the 2014-15 school year get under way without doing so.
