In addition to facing challenges in finding and keeping teachers, school districts across Tennessee are struggling to find support staff. One middle Tennessee district still needs 40 bus drivers.
Here’s a post from the Sumner County Schools Facebook page highlighting the high number of bus driver vacancies:
We currently have 40 openings for bus drivers. We appreciate parent’s patience and understanding as our Transportation Department continues to make every effort to maximize the speed and efficiency of every bus route.

That seems like a lot of openings.
What’s going on in your district? Are there enough bus drivers and other support staff?
