Transportation and Bus Driver Certification
The Jackson County ISD coordinates and facilitates a variety of services directed at assisting local public school districts in safely operating their pupil transportation programs.

Enrollment into Beginning Bus Driver Training and testing are required upon employment as a school bus driver. Each school district may also have additional criteria for hiring.

The Beginning Class is a mandatory 18 hour, 5 day class, and is offered for beginning school bus drivers who have met all prerequisites, or who have a certificate of course completion that has expired.
  
-The Six Hour Continuing Education Training is required in order to renew the current card expiring on September 30, 2017. If a card expires, that driver will need to attend the next available Beginning Bus Driver Training in order to drive a school bus. 

Drivers are asked to arrive a few minutes early to sign in and receive the class materials. Drivers should bring the Beginning School Bus Driver Manual with them to notate updates. Class breaks will be provided during the training and drivers are encouraged to bring a snack or lunch as catering is not provided.  
Workshops offer professional learning on topics of interest to school transportation staff, including student behavior, bus mechanics and bus driver training. Transportation Supervisors can arrange their own date/time for a workshop by contacting busdrivertraining@gmail.com
