Minot School Officials Struggle To Find Qualified Bus Drivers

(Minot, ND)  --   Minot Public Schools is looking for bus drivers.  

School officials say current staffing levels are sufficient to handle basic route to and from the 400 to 500 district students who ride the bus.  The problem, they say, is that field trips and other extracurricular activities are straining resources.  

To add insult to injury, new federal standards tightening entry-level CDL requirements reportedly could reduce the number of qualified drivers when the changes go into effect next year.
