A Missouri mother is outraged with University City schools after her 5-year-old son with special needs was dropped off at a bus stop without a guardian present. The mother claims her young son with autism was allowed to get off a bus on Friday afternoon without a parent present, and the bus driver drove away. Fortunately, the mother was able to connect with her son before anything happened to him. The bus company is Missouri Central School Bus, which provides busing for the school district. An investigation is being conducted into the company’s actions. The University City School District Superintendent said mistakes were made. The bus driver may not have known the little boy had autism and allowed him to get off the bus. The bus driver had only been driving the route for three weeks, according to officials. The mother says it is because of a lack of communication between the school district and the bus company.
