Bus drivers needed: Carmel Clay Schools to hold recruiting event where you can actually drive a bus

The Daily Reformer

CARMEL, Ind. — Carmel Clay Schools is in need of school bus drivers, and the district is hoping to rev up interest with a community event where people get a chance to get behind the wheel.

The event is called “Drive-a-Bus.” Community members are invited to come to Carmel High School’s stadium parking lot on Saturday morning to test drive a bus.

District leaders say the idea of driving a school bus leaves some people too intimidated to apply for the position. The recruiting event is meant to give people a first-hand look at what it takes.

Carmel Clay Schools superintendent Dr. Michael Beresford says if you can navigate a large SUV through the city’s many roundabouts, then you can likely handle driving a bus.

He says being understaffed is making it challenging for students to get to school on time.

“It’s kind of a logistical nightmare…We have to solve a puzzle every morning if we don’t have the full total number of drivers that we need,” said Dr. Beresford. “Give it a go, you know! If you’ve ever wanted to drive a school bus, here’s a great opportunity.”
