TEXARKANA, Ark. (KSLA) - On Feb. 16, the Texarkana Arkansas School District approved a temporary attendance incentive plan for bus drivers. Due to the success of the program, the district has voted to continue the incentive plan.

Officials say there were zero absences during the trial period.

The school board will continue to give bonuses to bus drivers who do not miss a day on the route through June. Full-time drivers with perfect attendance will get an extra $50 a day, and part-time drivers with perfect attendance will get an extra $25 a day.
