Some county school students will be arriving to school in style this August – thanks to the purchase of five new school buses.

The county school system operates on the transportation fleet renewal program, which allows for school bus replacement every year. Board members said Tuesday it was time to replace five 2000 International school buses and voted to spend nearly $365,000 to purchase five 2014 models.

Each 72-passenger school bus comes equipped with at least five video cameras, board members said.
