IRC school district superintendent recommends firing of bus driver

By Jamel Lanee

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - A school bus driver, accused of some unusual disciplinary actions, is on the verge of being fired.

A letter from the Indian River County School superintendent says she will recommend that bus driver Beatrice Anderson should be terminated effective July 23.

She says Anderson violated the standards of ethical conduct policy.

In a letter addressed to district leaders Anderson admitted to having some unruly kids on her bus.

The children reportedly poured liquid on another student.

That's when the bus driver asked for their clothes.

The superintendent wrote that Anderson failed to use acceptable disciplinary procedures and exposed students to unnecessary embarrassment.

Albert Davis filed a formal complaint on behalf of his grandson after learning of that incident. He alleges the bus driver took his grandson's shoes. "The kids are going to be rambunctious. You've got to be a certain minded person to take care of kids like that. You can't treat kids like that."

Davis says he believes firing the driver is the right thing to do.

The recommendation of the bus driver's termination will be addressed at the next school board meeting on July 22nd at 6 p.m.
