Bus Drivers Needed

There is no more important position in our school system than our school bus drivers. This job is much more than just getting the bus to school on time. Great school bus drivers also have a pocket full of tissues for runny noses, a bushel full of smiles for kids who are having bad days and hold an undying commitment to the safe and secure travel of the most precious cargo in the world. Our school bus drivers are responsible for picking up and delivering several hundred children during a normal shift — on time and safely. They are responsible for following all traffic and company regulations to the letter, and must remain cool, calm and collected in all situations. Our school bus drivers also complete daily pre- and post-shift vehicle inspection activities to ensure a safe journey for our riders. 

Please contact the Bus Shop at 478-472-8188 Ext. 2021 for more information.

Powerful Statement

Opportunity School District

Why is the Opportunity School District (OSD) Referendum Important?


In the November 2016 election, the following proposed state constitutional amendment will appear before voters:


Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow the state to intervene in chronically failing public schools in order to improve student performance?


Parents, educators, and other stakeholders are concerned about the OSD for many reasons. 
The OSD gives the state control over local tax dollars and local facilities. Local communities retain liability for local schools while the state seizes control of the schools.
