Superintendent Letter: Arrest of School Bus Driver

Dear OCSD Community,

I am writing to share that this afternoon, an employee of the district was arrested by local police on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

The arrest stems from an investigation that was launched after the district received a tip from a community member. The concerned community alleged that one of our bus drivers had been using drugs, prompting the district to immediately place the employee on leave and contact local police. Through a collaborative investigation between the district and police, it was discovered that the employee had been taking drugs in between the time that she was dropping students off between secondary and elementary school bus runs.

As a result of the investigation, the employee was arrested by members of the Oswego City Police Department and the employee resigned from her bus driver position. Please know that we are committed to the safety of our students and expect all staff to adhere to the highest ethical practices and conduct. We will not tolerate behaviors that compromise the safety of our children.

The district thanks the community member who contacted us with this information, district administrators and the Oswego Police Department for their quick response with respect to this matter.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact Investigator Kevin Hadcock at (315)342-8201. Calls will be kept confidential.

Yours in Education,
Mathis Calvin III, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
