My grand daughter is a special needs and she has been riding bus #50 ever since she went to the old Bridgeport School she now a Senior at Western Hills High school and the directer over the buss's has pull her driver off that route.Ms.Debbie is one of the best drivers that got there they are moving her on the East side of Frankfort.She really doesn't want to lose her kids and as a Parent and Melissa Ma maw I really think its wrong for them to move her if she doesn't want to be moved.They are putting some one on that bus that has never dealt with any Special needs children.I am not the only one that feel this way.I have talk to a lot of the parents and they feel the same way I do.....We need all the help we can get .If we don't speak out for our children then who will? Can anyone help us.

Yes the county is really screwing their drivers. I could never understand why they give the drivers vacation and personnal days but they are penalized when they use them. Office personnel are different they can fly out of state for a sick relative but let a drivers' father die and the driver is penalized for taking off for the funeral by taking away their field trips for that pay periodn and the next pay period which is extra money for them.

The head mechanic Dale Penn current girl friend (and I mean current check out topix on him)got the route she wanted so don't let anyone say brown nosing doesn't pay. We are just waiting for Mark Watson's girl friend to get a job there.

The entire county school system is corrupt. It's time for the citizens of Franklin County to get proactive. Research, and most importantly, VOTE in the school board elections. What the county needs is a new Superintendant, Ms Bueker just doesn't even begin to cut it. That starts with getting a school board in there that isn't afraid to do what's right. Instead of worrying about kissing Buekers ass, they should be worried about making the decisions we elect them to do. I'm scared to see what happens when Mr. Perkins leaves the booard this year. He's the only one that represents the people who elected him. A new Board and new Superintendant will pave the way for new administration- not just in Transportation but in the schools as well.

Well i think it a darn shame that they take a woman that has been on that route for about 15yrs and move her on the East side , She doesn't want to leave all her kids they are really upset I know my grand daughter who had a mini stroke this May has been put on more med cause of the stress It take someone special like Ms,Debbie and Ms.Wanda to deal with whatever comes up. When MY grand daughter had a mini stroke she new something was wrong is the new bus driver going to know what to do.Other then drive her to school and they call for help.With a stroke every minutes counts with my Angel.So please help us get Ms.Debbie back on her route.....All the children love her

I heard they took Miss Marshia off our route too, that's a shame my girls had finally got to the point they would ride the bus and I didn't have to take them. There was one boy that always gave the rest of the children problems but Miss Marshia got a handle on it. Shame Shame Shame.

Shame indeed. Did any parents attend the Board meeting on Monday night to address this topic? The next Board of Education meeting is August 16th at the Early Learning Village. Make yourselves heard!

They are short 11 drivers, they even hired back that driver that carries a pistol in her dash, threatens to use it and has got a nasty mouth. Doesn't mind using foul language in front of the kids either.

I know Miss. Marshia resign this year, I have talk to her and she said she resign after 20 years, she said Mr. Mark Watson took her route away from her for no reason. A driver that just started last year and is a girlfriend of the head mechanic ( Dale Penn )! and they gave her the route. She said she only miss one day last year when her daughter had twins,and DID NOT get a letter in her mail box for missing and the ones that did got their route back.In fact Mr, Watson had inform her twice during the summer that she was going to have the same route, so I guess he just bare face lied..! I hate to see her go my childrens really like her and she was a sweetheart, but she said she is better off cause of their stupied rules up there, If you miss for a family emergency or a family death you get funished from field trips. All I can say is good-by Miss. Marshia and Thank- You for taking so good care of my childrens. And you'll be truly miss. A Concern Parent !!!

To the fire fighter that just retire from Franklin Co. you are better off, I think it's stupied why they wouldn't hired you, but I heard if you wasn't dating a certain mechanic (that has a court order for him ) or carry a pistol in your car and have a nasty mouth or know Mr. Watson girlfriend you don't have a chance. You know you can risk your life been a fire fighter and probably save alot of people lifes and home but you are good enought to drive a damn school bus. But hang in there I repect you for everything you'd done for the citizens of Franklin Co.

Not all of the bus drivers that had letters got their routes taken away. There is a bus driver that was on materity leave twice in the last 3 years and her route was taken away because Watson said that she missed to many days, but the drivers that would call in for no apparent reason and with no excuse on a daily basis got their routes back. It is unbelieveable that someone would treat people like this. It is unfair and being discrimative. There are bus drivers that have had their routes forever and know their students and parents well. Why take them away from that when they finally have the students under control and have thier trust. It is not fair at all. Something needs to be done. This is uncalled for!!!!!!!

You mean they won't even hired a retired Fire Frighter, a person that's probably saves alot of homes and peoples lives but they hired some one that cusses like a dog. Why don't they get rid of her on Bus 13 and hire some one that cares, I would much rather for my kids to ride a safe bus than a bus they get cuss at. And far as going to the board meeting what good is going to do been there and done that !!!!
