DEPTFORD, New Jersey (WPVI) -- Students at a South Jersey high school will be dismissed earlier starting Monday due to a bus driver shortage.
Deptford High School will let students out at 1:25 p.m. instead of the normal 1:45 p.m.
The pandemic has caused a bus driver shortage in Deptford and several other school districts across our area.
The Deptford School District is offering to pay $23 an hour for drivers. "If you don't have a CDL yet, we will train you!" the district says.
Some schools are offering families money in exchange for them taking their kids to and from school - skipping the bus altogether.
The Camden City School District is offering families $1,000 to take their children to school themselves this school year.
