LEE CO., GA (WALB) - Lee County's school superintendent said the school board is considering a parent's request for monitors on each school bus.
The parent of a Lee County kindergarten student has met with school board officials about an incident on the school bus involving her child.
The parent has started a social media petition, asking other parents to demand another adult on all school buses to watch students.
But Superintendent Dr. Jason Miller says putting a rider on every school bus is not something the school system is able to do.
"We take these requests for a rider seriously," said Miller. "This is something we are evaluating. We're considering if the circumstances warrant such a measure."
Miller said the school buses are getting larger and carry more students, which he says would also make the job even more difficult for a second adult on each bus.
