Henderson County Schools Now Hiring Bus Drivers for 2017-18 School Year
The 2016-17 school year may be in the books (no pun intended), but the Henderson County School District is already looking ahead to the new school year which includes finding a few good people to help get students to and from school safely.
The District is currently accepting applications for school bus drivers. According to an e-mail exchange between myself and Director of Transportation Ben Payne, interested applicants will need to do the following:
- Fill out an application.
- Physical Examination form & TB skin test completed
- Valid social security card
- Driver’s license/criminal back ground check
- Proof of education(high school diploma, college transcript or GED)
- Voided check for direct deposit(mandatory)
- Complete online restraint & seclusion training
- Obtain a CDL permit with a P and S endorsement
- Attend 33 hours of paid class time for CDL before testing.
- Pre-employment Drug screening
Payne went on to say, "...this is a wonderful career. The Bus Driver is the First and last Employee that the students see every day, and a wonderful way to make a positive impact on our young community. The Drivers of Henderson County Schools take pride in everything that we do."
