School Bus Drivers Are a Tremendous Asset to Their Students

  • We provide students with a reliable and safe means to get to and from school each day. Our rides should be safe, comfortable and timely for our students, and their parents appreciate this service.
  • Drivers often are the first member of ACPS to greet a student and may be the first adult they have spoken with that day. We often are the last adult to encourage the student as they make their way home. Fond greetings and farewells help students to carry a positive attitude to school or back home.
  • To a student, the bus driver may be their safety manager, their leader, their mentor, their friend or their nurse. Sometimes we are their counselor or their disciplinarian or even their cheerleader.

Your nominee will have an impact on the values and growth of the many ACPS students that ride the bus he/she will be assigned to drive. Your recruiting effort will help students by providing us with an excellent candidate and by standing by to encourage your recruit throughout their training process.

Thank you for helping us fill our team of qualified school bus drivers!
