The fired driver for Durham School Services failed to check the bus Tuesday and left a 6-year-old boy alone for nearly two hours inside the vehicle at the bus yard as the summer temperatures rose outside. The boy had misunderstood instructions and had gotten onto the bus at the Boys and Girls Club so he could be taken home. A company employee found the boy sleeping on the bus after frantic calls from his mother.

In the other incident, a 9-year-old girl with autism was taken from a school program to her home Monday instead being taken to a YWCA for day care. The girl then crossed two busy streets as she walked to a store, where she was found in an aisle, playing with toys.

The Waterloo school district says it is working with Durham School Services to prevent any similar incidents in the future.
Different drivers. The driver in the 9-yr-old girl incident was put on leave.

They are not ever gonna stop this kind of idiocy, people are just too busy with {insert whatever} to actually even care about doing their job adequately. There's just nothing except people taking responsibility for the lives of these vulnerable people, And no one is going to do that.

Okay in our school district ALL buses are equipped with an ignition alarm system. When you turn the bus off an alarm sounds inside the bus which requires you to walk ALL the way to the back and hit a button to turn it off.. idea is to be checking for kids.. if you cheat and have your monitor turn it off too soon.. it trips an alarm attached to all internal and eternal lights (lamps / caution lamps) that began to flash & the horn begins to blow in short bursts signaling to the entire transportation yard YOUR NOT DOING YOUR JOB.. after turning the alarm off you walk back up the bus once again checking for kids on your way to exit and we NEVER locked the bus doors.. except for at night and it’s the turn of a knob from the outside and the actual manual lever on the inside not a locking system
