School district in Missouri has recruited students to drive school buses, provide custodial services, and do other jobs needed by their school

Most of the school districts in the state are looking for employees to drive school buses, provide custodial services, and do other jobs needed by their schools. One school district has even recruited students to fill these positions. The Northwest School District in Cedar Hill, where former Waynesville School District administrator and former Plato Superintendent of Schools Superintendent Kim Hawk is the district’s chief operating officer, recently accepted applications from 25 students interested in part-time positions. The students are currently in the out boarding process, which includes fingerprinting. Hawk says, “We’re going to actually hire more students than we have positions for, shop we have the flexibility for the students’ schedules. So, if they have a big test coming up, we have the flexibility for their schedules because their grades and being a student is their first priority.” The Northwest School District says they have received phone calls from other districts on how the plan is going and to get ideas.
