LISD: Bus driver terminated after forcing students to walk home

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A Longview Independent School District bus driver has been terminated, after district officials said she unloaded several middle school kids before taking them home.

According to the district, such action is grounds for termination.

On Friday afternoon, a Longview ISD bus was taking at least 20 students home from Forest Park Middle School when unruly students on the bus led the driver to stop the bus near High Street and Garfield Drive and instruct every student to exit the bus, according to the district. No students were injured but they walked home, LISD Community Relations Coordinator Adam Holland.
