The Personnel Report from the December 9 Board of Education meeting showed 7 more bus drivers left and 2 took medical leave. Of the seven who are no longer employed by Hoover City Schools, five left for “Other Employment” and two retired.
That’s a total of 20 of our bus drivers that were driven away by the Board’s July 15 decision to eliminate buses.
Not to burst anybody’s bubble, but….even though Superintendent Craig stated that the “model” they are considering at this point includes Hoover City Schools employing drivers (as opposed to outsourcing, contracting, or privatizing), there are no guarantees. The Board has shown time and again that it can change its mind rapidly with no public discussion.
