Fired bus driver may return
A state arbitrator has ruled that local school bus driver Ruth Joy Anderson may have her job back after being fired last year for not reporting an accident.
School District Personnel Director Donna Hill announced the ruling at a recent school board meeting. Anderson had driven a school bus for 21 years before her firing last June. .
The arbitrator ruled that while the school district had "just cause to discipline" her, the firing should change to an "unpaid suspension."
