Durham School Services will close all of its locations in Hamilton County, affecting hundreds of employees.

Durham is the company who hired the bus driver convicted in the Woodmore elementary bus crash.

The company filed a notice with the State's Labor and Workforce Development Office.

The paperwork says the closures will be effective June 30th. 314 employees will be affected.

The notice says this includes their locations at:

  • 2501 Dodds Avenue, Chattanooga TN
  • 3074 Hickory Valley Road, Chattanooga TN
  • 5705 Middle Valley Road, Hixson TN

Last month, the Hamilton County School Board voted to sever their relationship with Durham.

The board is in talks with a different company, First Student Incorporated.

According to school spokesman Tim Hensley, First Student will be visiting Hamilton County soon and discuss options for drivers affected.
