More bus drivers are needed in the Foothills School Division.

Assistant Superintendent Drew Chipman said they could use some backup.

"It continues to be a challenge. We do have all of our routes covered; the number of spare drivers we have you know we'd like that to be increased. So, we're always training and looking for drivers."

While they may have all their routes covered, they will definitely need more next year.

"As well, with the proposed changes for next year, we'll need to be hiring another probably dozen drivers for next year. That's not counting any drivers that may retire or decide to do something else. So, we'll be looking for a number of drivers for next year as well.

You can just reach out to the Foothills School Division if you're interested.
