Job fair: Train – and be paid – this summer to drive a bus for Henrico County Public Schools in the fall


The 2016-17 school year is drawing to a close and HCPS is looking ahead to building its team for the fall.

“We need strong bus driver candidates for our summer training sessions,” said Josh Davis, HCPS director of pupil transportation.

In addition to candidates for full-time and substitute bus drivers, HCPS is seeking full-time and substitute school nutrition services workers.
