PROVO, Utah (AP) -- The Provo School District already has a bus driver shortage, but that shortage is about to become even more pronounced after classes end at Brigham Young University.

Nearly 35 percent of the district's bus drivers are students, and many of them want to quit when final exams end, nearly a month before public school lets out for summer.

The district is offering $750 bonuses to new drivers and to those who haven't missed a day during the year.
