Some teachers to do double duty driving busesJuly 11, 2019
By The Associated Press
CARMEL — A suburban Indianapolis school district is signing up teachers to drive school buses before and after their usual time in the classroom.
Roger McMichael, associate superintendent for Carmel Clay Schools, says the district has struggled for years to find drivers. He says that driving buses can be more convenient than other second jobs available to teachers. And he says a teacher's ability to manage a classroom can help on a bus.
The Indianapolis Star reports Mike Bostic was the first teacher to take the district up on the offer. He's gone through an extensive licensing process, including weeks of training.
The newspaper says five more teachers are now going through the training.
The Indiana district's plans come as school districts throughout the U.S. struggle to find school bus drivers.
