A Glynn County bus driver and an assistant have been suspended from their jobs after they were accused of leaving a 5-year-old special needs student strapped into a bus alone for two hours.
School system spokesman Jim Weidhaas said the board of education will discuss the case Tuesday.
He told The Brunswick News that the driver and the assistant have not driven a bus since the incident happened.
The child was picked up last month and should have been taken to a pre-kindergarten program.
Instead, the student was left strapped in a car seat and left unattended for nearly two hours after the vehicle reached a bus depot.
Another driver noticed the child after boarding the bus. The names of the suspended employees have not been publicly released.
