Schools in Hall County battle bus driver shortage
Existing employees might be trained as subs
C.W. Davis Middle School Principal Eddie Millwood helps direct school buses as they enter the parking lot to pick up students.
Hall County Schools is looking for a creative solution to a chronic problem in school districts — a shortage of substitute bus drivers. With too few people attracted to the job, the district is looking at creating incentives for existing employees to take the substitute spots. The district currently has 24 substitute drivers and 232 regular bus drivers.
