ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   The 20 Sumter County School bus drivers who walked off the job Monday, were behind the wheel Tuesday.

Sumter School Superintendent Dr. Roy Brooks met with representatives of those striking bus drivers Tuesday, and told them they were overreacting to rumors about possible layoffs.

Brooks said he would not tolerate adults who work for the school system putting their interest above the safety and interest of the students, and expected them to continue to perform their jobs.

 The Superintendent said he would give his recommendations for making school transportation more efficient at their next meeting, on March 10th.
