The district is looking for both part-time and full-time drivers. Officials say the pay range runs from $14.05 an hour and $21.30 an hour. The pay for drivers will be based on professional experience. Average hours for drivers are from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 1:30 p.m to 4:30 p.m.

The district also offers health insurance, annual leave, sick leave, and an opportunity to join the state’s retirement program to bus drivers.

The bus drivers also receive Thanksgiving, Winter Break, Spring Break, and summers off. The district also provides drivers with opportunities to drive for some summer programs as well.
