• Bus Drivers - $ 14.96 – 20.08/hr

Both roles are often open throughout the year.

Currently there are 11 Educational Assistant positions of varying types and multiple bus driver positions available.


Educational Assistants

Educational assistants are a great option for parents who are interested in being off work when their kids are out of school. Experience is dependent upon the specific position but a desire to serve the students of our community is key.

Educational assistants do a wide variety of work from supporting classroom instruction to working with individual students and small groups, as well as playground support or administrative and library work.

Many educational assistants throughout the years have gone on to pursue additional careers in teaching. Completing advanced schooling and licensing to become teachers.

Bus Drivers

Bus drivers will need to be available before and after school hours, and must be okay with working a split shift, starting at 6 a.m. A commercial license is not necessary to apply, but they will need to be able to obtain the license. The transportation department does provide in house training needed to obtain the license.

As mentioned serving students and enjoying working with children is a must.
