Bus Driver Shortage Has Some Schools Paying Parents To Drop Off And Pick Up Their Kids
The latest shortage due to the pandemic economy is school bus drivers.
Obviously, if there’s no one to drive the bus, kids can’t take it…so now what? Some schools are getting creative and paying parents to drive the students in and pick them back up. One of the schools is EastSide Charter in Wilmington, Delaware. They’re giving parents $700 for the year!
One Ohio district is picking children up in shifts since they’re also pinched by the situation. One Nevada district is offering a $2-thousand bonus for school bus drivers.
Some schools are giving up. An Albuquerque, New Mexico, informed parents via email that there would be no bus service. But it was just one day before the start of school.
