Duties Kootenay Lake School District is looking for qualified candidates to work on an as needed basis as casual
Bus Drivers. Qualified candidates will be considered for placement on the established casual list. Please
note that driving bus requires skill, tact, professionalism and a keen interest in working with students.

Applicants for bus driver positions must possess a valid B.C. Class 2 (minimum) Driver's License
including an air brakes endorsement. This is professional bus driving work providing transportation for
students. Safety is the primary consideration of the job. The bus driver is responsible for obeying traffic
and safety regulations while driving in a variety of road and weather conditions, and ensuring that the
actions of the students do not provide a hazardous situation. Work is generally of a routine nature with
established routes, however, additional trips both within and outside of the school district occur.
The bus driver reports to the Director of Operations. Initially, assignments are outlined and closely
reviewed by the Director of Operations and Transportation Coordinator(s), but thereafter the bus driver
works with little direct supervision while en route. The work has well defined operating procedures,
methods and limits established by law, the School Board and departmental policy, including those for
dealing with inappropriate behaviour. Unusual circumstances are referred to the Director of Operations
and also, when appropriate, to the School Administrator on matters relating to student behaviour.
