Boston school superintendent halts van use at school after learning of weekend drunken driving arrest

Boston School Superintendent Carol R. Johnson is implementing new policies regarding school vans after learning that two teacher aides at one school drove students in school-leased vans without proper licenses and that one of them had been arrested for driving one of the vans under the influence of ­alcohol on a weekend.

School Department officials said that only one school operates the vans, which were used occasionally to respond to students’ “unique transportation needs.” The use of the three vans at the school, which has not been named, will be discontinued.
