The Hall County Board of Education is looking at how to entice current teachers and coaches in the system to earn their commercial driver’s license. “We’ve been having a great deal of trouble getting enough substitute (bus drivers) to man the routes that we need to man during the busy times of the year with other trips, (like) athletic trips and academic trips and so forth,” said Deputy Superintendent Lee Lovett. According to Lovett, roughly 20 percent of people the school system trains actually follow through with the program.
