CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — Ever wonder what it’s like to drive a school bus? Today Kanawha County Schools were allowing people to come out and “test drive” the buses, in hopes that they can get people to apply to be a school bus driver.
The trasnportation of students to and from school is a critical element of the educational process in West Virginia. More than eighty-five percent of West Virginia’s students ride a school bus each school day.
Being the person having direct responsibility for transporting students requires excellent driving skills, good health and physical condition, an understanding of child psychology and a dedication to the task that is, at times, above and beyond what is asked of the average school employee.
Facts about Kanawha County School Bus Drivers:
- Pay rate is $122.62 daily
- Health, dental and vision insurance when you become a full time employee
- Paid holidays when you become a full time employee
