DELTONA, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A Volusia County school bus driver was recently suspended after a video shows her texting while driving with children on the bus in September.

Cindy Bischoff was driving to Heritage Middle School in Deltona, Fla., when she began texting while driving. On Wednesday, Bischoff served a one-day suspension that wasn’t prompted by the review of the September surveillance video, but other complaints from parents of the children who ride the bus, according to WKMG.

The surveillance video from early September shows Bischoff texting on her phone while driving as children are heard on the bus.

Bischoff, who returned to work Thursday, will receive additional training following the incident, Volusia County School District Spokeswoman Nancy Wait told CBS Tampa. Volusia County school bus drivers already receive training three times a year, she said, adding that Bischoff’s suspension was without pay.

“Whenever there’s an incident, we provide additional training to make sure they understand the policy,” Wait said, “and the policy clearly states that cell phone use is not permitted while on duty.”
