IRVING -- It’s been a week since 15-year-old Aleysia Wilson told NewsFix what her bus driver said when he dropped her off at MacArthur High School in Irving. Now, he won’t be busing students anywhere. Tuesday, he was fired, according to Dallas County Schools.
"Dallas County Schools terminated a bus driver today after the results of an investigation showed he gave a high school student in Irving ISD a ring and made inappropriate statements to the child. DCS will not tolerate behavior like this from our drivers. Student safety on our buses is our top priority and this is absolutely unacceptable," the statement read.
“I’m glad he’s not on the bus, but not just for my daughter’s sake. It’s not just about us. It wasn’t just about Aleysia,” her mother, Leslie Clark said.
Aleysia missed two days of school after the incident. Her mother was told they can’t press charges because the driver didn’t break any laws.
"Just getting back to our normal lives without having to relive it every day. I was just so angry. Just getting back to our everyday lives without having to look over our shoulder every couple minutes,” Clark said. “He was so bold to write his whole name on the paper. I’ve been so busy fussing, and cussing, and being mad, that I had to stop and just say, ‘thank you.’ It could’ve been a lot worse.”
