The Transportation Department for Eaton School District RE-2 is looking for those of you who would like to make a difference in your child’s School District by becoming a bus driver.
Now, I know the first thing that comes to mind is “It’s a big vehicle, I can’t drive that”. Well let me tell you, most people say the same thing during their interviews but are quite surprised and amazed on how easy it was to learn to drive the bus. We have a very good trainer here and we do the training here on site. Also, you are paid the entire time you are training.
Routes are an easy two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon on school days and you are off when the kids don’t have school. You can bring them with you on the routes if needed, and if you take a trip (activity or sports) you get paid to watch them if they participate in the event.
Bus drivers start at $13.20/hr., Mini bus drivers $10.13/hr., and Sub drivers at $12.50/hr.
All training, shop work, and meetings are at $10.08/hr. Trips are paid at $12.00/hr. from the time you start the trip to the time you finish it.
We also have opportunities to work during the summer months with various jobs which helps with the paycheck but it’s not required.
Please go online and fill out an application and become an important part of your child’s School District.
Remember, without the bus driver’s most kids won’t be able to get to and from school; let alone go anywhere for sports or do activity trips.
If you have any question, please feel free to stop by the bus garage and talk with me.
Sincerely, Jeff Clark, Transportation Director
