Substitute Bus Driver/ Bus Driver Pool

PSESD seeks on-call Substitute Bus Drivers for our Early Learning and McKinney Vento Transportation Services to transport children to program-related activities. In addition to being on call, sub drivers from this pool will be eligible for open routes as they come available.

We operate under the guidance of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) Pupil Transportation Services, as well as the mandates included in the Head Start, ECEAP, and McKinney-Vento Program Standards which govern program operation including the provision of transportation services.
