AVON LAKE, OH (WOIO) - Avon Lake School District will be the first in the state to test seatbelts on school buses.

City Council approved the pilot program on Monday, May 13.

Last December, the city of Beachwood made steps in the same direction thanks to a group of students.

A class of third graders got the school district to fund $250,000 for seatbelts after lobbying for safety.

As far as Avon Lake a roll-out date for the seatbelts is to be determined.
