Need extra income??  WE NEED SUBSTITUTE BUS DRIVERS !

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A BUS DRIVER?  We offer training at the local level here in Malvern.  Contact our transportation department for more details, if interested.  See below for our contact information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

** NOTICE to PARENTS;  You are not permitted to enter your childs bus!  If you must talk to the driver, remain on the ground at the open door,  or use the drivers side window!  This is state law.

If your children do not attend one of the daycares, that we have cluster stops at, they are not to catch the bus at the daycare!  They must use the gazebo near the post office, the library, or the cluster stop at the old school.


Also, if your children are sitting in a car due to rain the bus driver can not see them.  Please flash your lights and blow the horn to get his attention if he closes the bus door before your children can get to the bus.

The Yellow Bus -- did you know?

Bus drivers in Ohio must attend 15 hours of classroom training and 20+/- hours of on the road training; then pass the CDL test. Then they must pass an annual physical, criminal background checks, and drug testing—all before they can transport a student. Then every 6 years each driver must go through a re-certification program, and again be tested on all, except the CDL.

By law, schools must transport all K-8 graders, but are not required to transport 9-12 graders or pre-schoolers (except for certain conditions).

K-8 graders may be made to walk up to ½ mile to their designated bus stop; this limit is not in effect for 9-12 graders.

The school is not required to transport students living within 2 mile of the school.

By law, students must be at their designated bus stop prior to the bus arriving. The bus doesn't have to stop at designated stops, if there are no students already there.

Parents are responsible for their childs safety to and from their designated bus stop, and while at the bus stop.

Other Important Facts

School buses keep cars off the road, decreasing both traffic congestion and fuel emissions

The safety record for school bus transportation exceeds that of all other modes of travel.

Large school buses are heavier and distribute crash forces differently than do passenger cars and light trucks.  Because of these differences, the crash forces experienced by occupants of buses are much less than that experienced by occupants of passenger cars, light trucks or vans.
