County schools running short on bus drivers
from Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
On a typical day at the East Irondequoit Central School District transportation garage, it's all hands on deck. Facing down a shortage of bus drivers means everyone, from the Transportation Director on down to the mechanics and administrative staff, could be called on to take a wheel, hit the road and head out to pick up and drop off students. "We've got to do what it takes" to go out and pick up all of our kids, said Kathy Callon, head of the district's transportation department. "We were worse off last year than this year, but we've been consolidating routes where we have to and there are definitely days I have the mechanics and dispatchers out there driving."
