For children who will be 5 by Dec. 1, 2019, parents may enroll their child through written notification to the school district by June 1, 2019.

    WE ARE HIRING! Substitute bus drivers, riders/aides needed, paid training available

    Precious cargo aboard! Char-Em ISD is looking for substitute bus drivers and riders/aides for our multiple bus routes to and from Char-Em programs. Flexible hours and days mean you choose when you can provide coverage of routes. Char-Em pays for all required driver training (written testing and on-road testing), so experience is not necessary. Experience working with special needs children is not required, but is helpful, as is a compassionate personality. Because of the wide geographical area covered by Char-Em, we pay you from when you leave the house to get to your assigned transportation route each day that you work. Routes may be in Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim counties. Those interested may also start as (paid) aides rather than driver, to see if the job is a good fit.

    Sound like this is for you? We welcome you to learn more by reading the complete job descriptions online. Contact Char-Em ISD’s Transportation Coordinator at 231-582-8070 if you have further questions or you’re interested in applying!
