Dougherty County -- Many parents may be concerned whether their kids have a ride to or from school Monday. On Friday, a small Dougherty County bus driver strike caused a delay in many students getting home.

About 15 school bus drivers showed up at the school administration building on Friday confused over the way they are now being paid.

Sunday afternoon some of those disgruntled bus drivers met at Robert Cross Park with hopes of coming to a resolution with the school board. They discussed the issues they will bring up in a meeting scheduled with the school leaders Monday.

Some parents of Dougherty County School children feel lost about the topic and just want to be informed.

"There is not enough bus drivers so I guess they are discouraged, but we don't know as parents. We don't know what they are going through. So for our kids sake I believe somebody should step up and give us some more information because we can't do nothing about their pay," said Marco Belloso.

Bus drivers said Sunday they plan to be to work as scheduled Monday so parents shouldn't worry.

Dougherty County School board member Michael Windom told WALB News Ten that there are enough substitute drivers to take all children to school Monday morning if they are needed.
