School Bus Driver

Position Overview

Westminster Academy is a private Christian school located in northeast Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our fleet of 4 buses (3 yellow buses and a 32-seat activity bus) is used principally for after-school activities, athletic practices, and games. WA does NOT operate morning and afternoon bus routes to transport students to and from school. The workday for WA school bus operators generally starts at 2:00 p.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m., although away games can return much later in the evening. There are occasional field trips during the school day. WA’s policy is to have an adult staff member riding every bus, and we take student behavior accountability seriously.

We are looking for operators willing to commit to availability five days/week when school is in session in exchange for our commitment of a minimum of 20 hours of paid time when school is in session, whether assigned a trip or not.
