Hamilton’s school boards are projecting a bus driver shortage that could affect students come Sept. 4, the first of classes.
This may come as no surprise to parents with kids heading back to the classroom because it has affected school boards across the province for the past few years.
Todd White, chair of the Hamilton-Wentworth District school board says no cancellations are expected but there will likely be delays.
“The last two years the numbers have been significant, definitely enough to bring us into a negative. That’s why even though the numbers are checking out similar to last year, from experience we can simply say there will be a delay.”
