Jefferson County Public Schools officials say they are working on a solution to Tuesday’s transportation problems.

After a smooth start to the first day of classes, about 400 students were returned home several hours late. The problems largely involved elementary school students. For the first time, they were given lanyards that displayed their school and bus information. Some, however, did not receive lanyards. That, combined with confusion over other transportation issues created problems for bus drivers, parents and students.

A JCPS spokesperson says Superintendent Sheldon Berman will explain the problems and their solutions at a press conference this afternoon.
