The Mason City School District is searching for reliable, dependable people to train to become school bus drivers.
"You already drive your children places; why not get paid to drive them? You would have the same schedule they do, summers and holidays off. Plus, if volunteering in the classroom is important to you, this job provides ample time in between runs to be the PTA mom or dad," explains CJ Thornton, Mason City Schools Transportation Supervisor.
Because children are precious cargo, the district's goal is to hire caring, conscientious individuals who meet the requirements of the job.
