Rapid City Area School District bus drivers needed

South Dakota teachers aren't the only ones in a bind this school year. A call is going out to get qualified people interested in getting kids to class this year.

The Rapid City Area School District still needs seven bus drivers to make a full staff. The driver position is part time with morning and afternoon hours. It includes benefits, insurance, and time off. Rapid City Area School District's transportation manager, Dennis Berg, says it can be hard to recruit the right people to work with kids on a part time schedule. "It's more consistency for the students. I mean, if you have the same person on route everyday it helps with the discipline issues on the drivers. When you have subs out there everyday, they may be playing little games with the drivers. It's much better to have a regular driver on route that gets to know the students." 

If you have a smiling face, are great with kids, and looking for a great way to make extra money, the District wants to hear from you.
