Butler Area School District on Monday approved a correction to its school year in the wake of busing software malfunctions.

The district also may be looking to a new flexible schedule to make that happen.

Board members unanimously approved a revised school year calendar that will account for the two days missed due to bus route software complications.

“We have to make those up,” said Butler Superintendent Brian White.

White said the cause of the software malfunction still is unknown. He said the administration also acknowledges the concerns of parents who have not been fully informed.

“We’ll find more stability and more progress as we move forward,” White said. “I know there’s frustration with what’s going on. But there’s also a spirit of trying to get things done. Even when I left to come to this board meeting, staff was still present trying to get things done.”
