Prince William Co. Schools to Pay Overtime to Teachers, Staffers Sitting With Students Waiting for Buses

The ripple effect from the bus driver shortage in Prince William County Public Schools has reached teachers and staff, who’ve had to stick around after hours — without pay — to stay with students waiting for buses.

But Superintendent Latanya McDade says they’ll at least now be compensated for that time, WTOP reported.

The funds for the additional pay will come from the American Rescue Plan, approved by Congress earlier this year.

The Virginia county is one of several jurisdictions in the D.C. region currently experiencing a bus driver shortage as students return to full-time in-person learning amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has caused delays and congested parking lots at numerous schools, WTOP reported.
