From Superintendent Jeffery Talbert's office: In the Alliance City School District the safety and well-being of our students is our top priority. This morning, on Bus 5, one of the kindergarten students brought a gun onto the bus in their backpack. At the time, there was only one other student on the bus and they showed the gun to that student. That student reported it to the bus driver, who immediately stopped the bus and safely took the backpack and kept it in her possession. I would like to thank the student who was brave enough to report the gun, as well as the bus driver for handling the situation calmly and safely. I would also like to thank the Alliance Police for assisting in this situation and working to keep our students safe. Again, the safety and well-being of our students is our top priority.

At the Alliance City Schools, we make student safety our top priority, and we hold our staff and bus drivers to the highest professional and safety standards. Earlier today, it was brought to our attention that one of our bus drivers may have been speeding and texting while operating a district bus. NO students were on the bus at the time. As soon as the district was notified, the driver was placed on administrative leave and an investigation began immediately. The bus driver in question will be dealt with according to the Alliance City Schools Employee Code of Conduct. As the safety of our students is our top priority, we will not tolerate this kind of behavior from any district staff member. We will again communicate and reinforce our expectations and safety policies to our transportation staff.
