FISD director of transportation reportedly placed on leave

District superintendent yet to confirm action

Ten days after KSAT aired exclusive video of a Floresville bus driver mocking a crying student, emails to KSAT are reporting the Floresville ISD director of transportation has been placed on administrative leave.

FISD Superintendent Dr. Sherri Bays would not answer questions regarding the news, saying, "Personnel matters are confidential, therefore I am not at liberty to discuss them."

Bays also would not confirm whether or not Steven "Beaver" Wallace had been placed on leave.

Last week KSAT aired video of the driver of bus No. 67 inviting students on the bus to join her in chanting "cry, cry, cry" to a young girl.

Within 24 hours of the story, the district confirmed the driver was no longer employed by the district.
