Lenoir County Needs Substitute School Bus Drivers

Lenoir County Officials say there are enough drivers for the 146 routes in the county, but no substitutes. So if someone calls out that means another driver has to double-up routes.

That's causing some students to either get to school late in the morning, or get home later from school. School officials say this is mainly effecting Woodington Middle School and North Lenoir High School.

Lenoir County School spokeswoman Lidia Guzman says they've had plenty of people applying, but not enough people who qualify.

"We do have many people who come to sign up but it's the qualifying for the position that seems to be ongoing." said Guzman.

She says another problem is once people get licensed they would rather have a full time job, then just a part time job. So they look for something else.
