To Our Springboro Families -
The support of our parents and community members is essential to the success of Springboro Schools. As many in the community may be aware, our district is again continuing to experience a shortage in the number of available bus drivers and subs. This shortage is not only affecting Springboro Schools, but numerous other districts around the county, state, and tri-state area.
Transparency is important. In an effort to communicate with you about our lack of available bus drivers and subs at this time, our hope is to both inform you about the district’s need for additional bus drivers, as well as to make you aware of potential route changes or cancellations in the near future, due to this shortage.
If bus driving positions are not able to be filled, the reality of having to combine routes, or even cancel routes for a period of time, could come to fruition throughout this school year. If a route change or cancellation were to occur, you would be notified directly. However, this could occur on short notice, potentially as late as the morning-of or night before. Our district will make every effort possible to avoid this situation and provide as much lead time as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
The district’s Transportation Dept. has been working diligently on a variety of options to help compensate for a lack of bus drivers. While the Transportation office staff has stepped up to fill-in as district bus drivers already, several district mechanics are stepping in to fill areas of need, as well. However, this is not a permanent solution. While we greatly appreciate the efforts of our Transportation staff to serve as a bus driver, this ultimately takes time away from their daily responsibilities throughout the office in running the district’s Transportation Dept.
Springboro Schools has promoted the hiring of bus drivers and subs. We would appreciate the support of our parents and community members who have continually shown their willingness to help. As a district, we are committed to providing high-quality, safe transportation services that accommodate the various academic and extracurricular needs of our students. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a bus driver, please visit our Transportation Dept. webpage.
