An empty school bus replaces the old churches that used to house county preschools. A year ago fire inspections stopped the use of the churches and disbanded the program.

The idea to use buses came from Bath County -- it's been using buses for pre-school for 20 years. The bus has all the things a classroom would need including heating, air and bathrooms. Officials from both counties agree that this program reaches more students because the classroom is mobile -- however the children aren't in the bus when it moves.
