Bus Driver No Longer Driving SR Students

209

A bus driver allegedly speeding will no longer drive Slippery Rock School District students, according to the district administration.

Superintendent Alfonso Angelucci said Beth Drake, the district’s transportation director, alerted the contracted transportation company, Student Transportation of America of Portersville.

He said Drake asked the company to investigate.

“The behavior exhibited by the driver failed to meet the expectations of the school district and the transportation company,” Angelucci said.

There were no students aboard at the time of the incident, according to Angelucci.

“Our contracted transportation company investigated the matter and took swift immediate actions,” Angelucci said. “The driver will no longer be transporting Slippery Rock students.”

“We were made aware with the situation,” said Kevin Barnhart, the transportation company’s general manager. “We worked with the Slippery Rock School District.”

Barnhart said he could not say if the driver was fired, citing privacy of personnel actions.

“It’s a personnel issue,” Barnhart said. “We conducted an investigation and took appropriate action.”
