The Kettering School District needs six additional substitute drivers before the beginning of the school year Aug. 17.
Kettering School District Director of Transportation Todd Silverthorn says 60 percent of schools in the country are experiencing a bus driver shortage.
“The economy is improving and people who were driving buses have been able to find other full-time jobs,” Silverthorn said.
The school district says they will continue look for drivers and will provide training to employees who do not have experience in the field.
