Carrollton, GA - (AP) - The Carroll County school district is
working to verify that its bus driver training program meets state
standards following a deadly accident.
District spokeswoman Elena Schulenburg said Thursday afternoon
that the district is coordinating with the Georgia Department of
Education and Department of Drivers Services to be sure bus drivers
are being trained properly. The move comes after 17-year-old James
Rashawn Walker died when his school bus ran into a ditch and
overturned Monday.
The driver, 59-year-old Kenneth Ross Herringdine of Roopville,
was a trainee who was being supervised by an experienced driver.
District officials say he'd met all Georgia Department of Education
requirements for trainees and was soon to be a fully licensed bus
driver.
