(Euclid) 75 school bus drivers for the city of Euclid could have lost their full-time jobs with benefits.

That's because the school board decided not to renew their contract when it expired July 31st.

Current drivers were told on Monday morning they could re-apply for their old jobs, but they would be part-time with no benefits.

This has come as a shock to the drivers, many of whom have been driving for the school district for more than a decade.

On Monday night, the school board voted 3-1 to privatize bus service.  They'll be working with "First Student" out of Cincinnati.
