Monitors serve as extra eyes, ears, and hands for the driver. Some children with special needs require a monitor on the bus during transport to school. Monitors are fingerprinted, given physicals, and drug screens.
Monitor training is shorter than driver training but does require 15 hours of hands on training. During this time you will receive experience in tying down wheel chairs, installing car seats, and other restraints. Ideally, monitor applicants attend classroom training with drivers. They can respond in times of need more effectively if they know what is required of the driver.
Applications for drivers or monitors must be completed online at www.sticareers.com or by calling 850-202-6910. Follow-on interviews are taken at the Milton office at 6544 Firehouse Road or the Navarre office located in the bus compound behind Holley-Navarre Intermediate School.
