NOTE OF NEED IF ANY PARENTS ARE INTERESTED: We’re looking to fill out next year’s slate of bus drivers!

The shuttle bus runs have been a pivotal part of this year’s growth. We have heard from numerous families that busing has been a game-changer for their families and made it possible for their families to stay at The Academy!

However, we need to expand our driver teams for next year. There are possible openings/needs at all three campuses. Some drivers only drive AM or PM, and others drive both. In general, we’re looking for folks who can commit to driving the bus 2+ days a week. Some of our buses require a CDL, and some do not. If you need a CDL, we are able to get it through a training partnership with Edmond Public Schools, and these [summer] training costs are entirely paid for by The Academy.

Are you interested in joining the busing team? Let me know! Happy to answer any questions you may have, including compensation, schedules, and all the rest! Contact – Stephen Taylor (staylor@theacademyok.org)

We are looking to hire for 2021-2022.
