0



There’s a big challenge school districts around the state and the country are grappling with ahead of the first day of school: shortages of key positions.

“I just hope the buses work out in the end,” said Aunna Maddox, a 14-year-old student, about her return to the classroom.

Among five of the Louisville area’s biggest school districts, there are about 1,100 job openings, according to data from the Kentucky Education Association, collected from Bullitt, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby and Spencer county school districts as of July 29. Shortages of bus drivers are among the worst.
