(ANGOLA) - As the new school year gets underway, the M.S.D. of Steuben County finds itself short of substitute bus drivers. Transportation Director Scott Poor told the district's Board of Trustees on Tuesday night there are certain requirements that have to be met before anyone can get behind the wheel of a school bus such as getting the proper licensing and attending a class.
The lack of substitute drivers has forced the start of sporting events to be pushed back since the regular drivers are taking teams to their games and a substitute is not available to cover their regular route.
Poor also reported that 88 percent of the district buses passed the Indiana State Police inspections that were conducted last month and he says that was the highest percentage in the area.
