Antioch-Lake Villa Area High School District 117 students who enroll in the cosmetology program at the Lake County High Schools Technology Campus won't be able to take the bus to the campus next school year. The District 117 school board gave the go-ahead to Superintendent Jim McKay to allow cosmetology students to drive themselves to the technology campus next school year, a move that will save the district

$3,000 and $4,000 in busing costs. McKay told the board cosmetology students have to stay at the

technology campus about an hour and a half later than other students who attend classes there. This requires the district to send an extra bus to pick up those students, McKay said. After their cosmetology class, the students are done for the day, he added. He said some technology campus students already drive to their classes, and the campus has plenty of parking available. Should a student not have a car, McKay said that issue will be dealt with at that time.
