**EMBARGO: Nashville, TN** Seventeen students were rescued from this school bus after it was caught in flood waters.

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.
