Tampa School District's Special Needs Policies Under Review After Student Death
TAMPA - A task force will review the special needs policies of a Tampa Bay area school district months after a seven-year-old student's death.
Isabella Herrera died a day after choking and losing consciousness aboard a school bus. The bus driver was following district policy by calling a bus dispatcher instead of 911.
The school board met Thursday deciding to let bus drivers know that in an emergency they are urged to use good judgement and common sense.
Isabella's family has filed a lawsuit against the school district.
