Onslow County school bus drivers needed

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) - Onslow County Schools are in need of bus drivers and are currently seeking people to take on the job. 

A spokesperson for the district said they're currently at a lower amount of bus drivers than before. 

"A lot of students ride the bus, so we need bus drivers, all we can get, that's always a constant need for a school our size," said Brent Anderson, executive director of community affairs.

He added it's not an urgent problem, but the help is always needed. 

Due to Hurricane Florence, students were displaced to others parts of the county, resulting in an extension of routes for bus drivers. 

Officials with the school district say this has put a bit of a strain on their transportation system. 

"But it is something that is good for those kids to stay in the school where they were," said Anderson.

For those interested, you must have a commercial drivers license and complete the bus driver training course. 

The course is offered by the DMV and the school district which will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
