FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  Fort Wayne Community Schools is getting greener. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management awarded the district a $314,000 grant on Tuesday.

The grant is intended to be used on green initiatives. The district plans to use the money to create buses with cleaner exhaust systems.

The FWCS buses transport about two-thirds of the district’s students 31,000 students each day. That adds ups to the equivalent of transporting the entire population of Fort Wayne every six days.
