The Springdale School District says it’s struggling to hire bus drivers.
Dana Samples, the Transportation Director at the school district, says it’s a problem that never seems to go away because of a high turnover rate.
Samples adds this isn’t just a problem in Springdale.
“We could use six right now. But to be honest, that number varies and it’s a high turnover rate. It varies daily,” Samples says.
The district does a criminal background check before it hires drivers.
The potential hire also must go through intensive training.
