BPS Parents, Staff, Patrons, and Community Members:

The lack of available applicants for school bus drivers for Bixby Public Schools has bottomed out to an all-time low.  BPS does not have enough bus drivers to meet our current needs.  The District has consolidated, closed, doubled, and re-routed routes to combat the fact that we don’t have enough bus drivers.  Students are on buses longer than ever before.  Given our current demand, we are fast-approaching the reality that we will not be able to continue our current routes and get students to school on time.

We don’t have folks applying to be a bus driver.  WE NEED APPLICANTS.  At the April 10th Board of Education meeting, the Board approved raising the beginning hourly rate for a bus driver to $12.00 per hour beginning July 1, 2017.  BPS offers applicants help in preparing for the school bus licensing process.

School bus drivers must:

  1. Meet minimum conditions of a physical exam
  2. Hold a valid State of Oklahoma issued Class B CDL driver’s license with air brakes preferred.
  3. Hold valid school bus driver license endorsements of Passenger and School Bus
  4. Meet Criminal and DMV background check requirements

Without more bus drivers, we will have no choice but to change the start and end times of the school day for one or more of our elementary schools.  Changing the start and end times will allow us to stagger our bus routes and utilize fewer drivers to accommodate more routes.

Current Elementary Start and End Times: 

8:40 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

One or More Elementary Schools May Have to Change to the Following Start and End Times: 

9:05 a.m. to 4:05 p.m. 

We have advertised, marketed, and begged for applicants.  I am asking you to forward the following information to 10 people.  Perhaps if we get the “word” out our applicant pool for bus drivers will increase.

Please, please help us communicate the need for bus drivers:
