JOINS US LIVE WITH MORE ON WHAT HAPPENED. THE YOUNGSTER IS A FIVE YEAR OLD GIRL, WHO INSTEAD OF BEING IN CLASS YESTERDAY, WAS LEFT ALONE ON A SCHOOL BUS. 2:15 Mike Raisor/JCPS Chief Operation Officer says, This is, Steve intolerable it”s unacceptable. YESTERDAY, MORNING A JCPS BUS DROPPED OFF STUDENTS ON HIS BUS AT EISENHOWER ELEMETARY IN PLEASURE RIDGE PARK. BUT, ONE REMAINED. A LITTLE GIRL APPARENTLY HAD FALLEN ASLEEP IN HER SEAT. :15 Mike Raisor/JCPS Chief Operation Officer says, It is protocol that the driver physically get out of their seat and walk the bus assuring all the students were dismissed at the school. THE BUS RETURNED TO THE LEES LANE COMPOUND IN SOUTHWEST JEFFERSON COUNTY WITH THE CHILD STILL INSIDE. ONCE THE BUS IS SHUTDOWN, THE DRIVER IS REQUIRED TO CHECK THE VEHICLE AGAIN FOR STUDENTS. SCHOOL SYSTEM CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER MIKE RAISOR SAYS THERE IS PROOF THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN BECAUSE THE BUS CAMERA CONTINUES TO OPERATE FOR 5 MINUTES. :46 Mike Raisor/JCPS Chief Operation Officer says, We have a five year old student between 9:05 and 9:15, after viewing the bus camera footage was seen left on the bus. AROUND TWO HOURS LATER SECURITY CAMERAS IN THE COMPOUND CAPTURED THE GIRL WALKING IN THE COMPOUND. A FEW MINUTES LATER AN ARRIVING BUS DRIVER SPOTTED THE YOUNGSTER STANDING AT THE CURB AT FARNSLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL WHICH IS ON THE SAME PROPERTY AS THE COMPOUND. BY THAT TIME LMPD WAS ALSO ON THE SCENE. THE CHILD WAS OKAY. BUT SCHOOL OFFICIALS AREN’T 2:35 Mike Raisor/JCPS Chief Operatoig Officer says, We will not tolerate when safety protocols are not followed. The safety and welfare of our children is our number one concern. MIKE RAISOR SAYS FOR HIM THIS IS PERSONAL. HE PUTS HIS SON ON A JCPS BUS DAILY. AS FOR THE DRIVER, WHO HAS WORKED FOR THE SCHOOL SYSTEM FOR FIVE YEARS, HE RESIGNED. IF HE HADN’T RAISOR SAYS HE WOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED. STEVE BURGIN WLKY NEWS. THANKS STEVE. 70-THOUSAND STUDENTS ARE TRANSPORTED ON SOME 970 J-C-P-S BUSES EVERYDAY.
