Loudoun County School Bus Drivers Fear Losing Benefits

Benefits issue among topics at public hearing on school budget

View Comments ()



    The Loudoun County School Board held a public hearing Tuesday night on the proposed school budget.

    About 70 people have signed up to speak, including some part-time school bus drivers who fear they could lose their benefits.

    Right now, they're eligible for benefits after working three-and-a-half hours per day. Under a proposed plan, drivers would have to work additional hours in order to get those benefits.

    The school board votes on the new budget on Feb. 7.
