“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.”

IRVING -- When kids ride the bus to school, there's a grown up behind the wheel whose job is to keep everyone safe. But when the bus arrived at Irving's MacArthur High School Wednesday, Aleysia Wilson says things took a bad turn with the driver.

"(He said), 'You're a special girl.' He gave me a ring and his phone number and he said, 'we will be good friends,'" she explained.

Aleysia called her mom and told her what happened.

"I want to do whatever I have to do to expose this man, to get him off these school buses, away from these kids," said Leslie Clark, Aleysia's mother.

The school district told NewsFix they immediately contacted Dallas County Schools (DCS), which provides bus transportation for the district.

"The individual will no longer transport students in Irving ISD," the district's statement said.

And Dallas County Schools says he's been "placed on administrative leave" pending the outcome of the investigation.

Aleysia's mom is afraid the danger isn't over, "He knows what area we live in, in case he wants to get crazy or whatever."

Looks like the school safety zone may have failed this test.
