With less than a week to go before a planned bus driver strike, Dayton Public School officials have yet to release details of a backup student-transportation plan.

The Local 627 chapter of the OAPSE bus drivers’ union announced plans to strike last week, after contract talks with the district broke down. DPS officials say there are no plans to continue negotiations with the union before the April 10 strike date.

To learn more about how the impending driver strike could impact DPS parents and students, WYSO’s Jess Mador spoke with WYSO education reporter April Laissle.
