Las Vegas (FOX5)-People looking for a job can help themselves while helping Clark County School District with a prolonged shortage of bus drivers. The district lacks about 240 school bus drivers.
Parents complained about the slow bus, and there isn’t even a bus for their kids. Many school sporting events have been canceled due to lack.
CCSD has a detailed guide to becoming a school bus driver. Applicants must complete a set of requirements before being hired.
Requirements for becoming a bus driver include a valid driver’s license, safe driving record, 10 years of driving history, 7 years of working history, and must be completed and approved on the application form. Bus drivers need a commercial driver’s license to drive a school bus, but applicants do not need a CDL to apply. CCSD said it will help candidates obtain CDL and pay for training.
According to the CCSD website, bus trainees earn $ 15.67 per hour. At the end of the training, bus drivers earn between $ 15.67 and $ 19.98 per hour, and special education bus drivers earn between $ 16.45 and $ 20.99 per hour.
CCSD wants a full-time bus driver, but part-time work is also available. District officials said part-time drivers are not eligible for sick leave, vacation, severance pay, or paid leave.
The training period for becoming a bus driver is two and a half weeks.
It takes a total of about two months from application to driving a school bus on one of the 1600 bus routes in the district.
