Make a difference in education. Bus drivers and bus assistants are key to our students’ success. We are focused on safety, and we’ll train you!
Join the professionals on our Transportation Team. As a team member you will be an important part of the education process. If you are 21 years of age and have a high school diploma you can become a bus driver or assistant.
School bus drivers must pass a rigorous background investigation including a SLED check and a DMV records check. School bus drivers must maintain a commercial driver’s license with passenger, air brake and federal school bus endorsements. They are also required to complete 20 hours of classroom instruction and pass a State Department of Education certification test. As a part of their training, drivers also complete many hours of on the road training and pass a rigorous driving evaluation. Each driver must pass a physical performance test and is subject to random monthly drug screening. Annually, drivers attend at least 10 hours of training to maintain their proficiency.

The goal was to help people see there are careers available in Berkeley County and also help BCSD’s graduating seniors see they don’t need “just a job.” Opportunities to begin careers with local employers are available.
Current vacancies are not limited to teaching positions and include opportunities for: auto mechanics, bus drivers, carpenters, child nutrition workers, electricians, grounds workers, HVAC servicers, kitchen repair mechanics, mover helpers and plumbers.
If you are interested, we encourage you to attend one of two upcoming job fairs.
As the music of Motown and hits from the 60s and 70s pumped through the sound system in the BMS cafeteria, those dining, laughing and reminiscing on the lifetime they spent working with BCSD pondered what their legacy would be.
