Houston Independent School District seeks to fill several critical operational positions, including bus drivers, custodians, crossing guards, plumbers, telecommunication technicians, electricians, HVAC technicians, and maintenance repair personnel.
A job fair for these positions is being held Saturday, September 10, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Sam Houston High School, 9700 Irvington Blvd., 77076.
Last year on the final day of school in Maria Reveles-Gonzalez’s third-grade class at Pilgrim Academy, she posted a sign that read “last day of school.” Students wrote on it what they learned that year, as well as their favorite subject. While most wrote that they enjoyed learning multiplication, one student answered, “to be confident in who she was.” That moment helped the then-first-year teacher confirm that this was where she wanted to be—at HISD.
“It was so beautiful to see that is what she took away from being in my class for one year,” Reveles-Gonzalez said.
Transportation Services is hosting more than a dozen job fairs over the next four months to recruit new bus drivers in preparation for the 2021-2022 school year.
Though no decisions have been made about next year, the department is ramping up recruiting efforts to prepare for the possibility of transporting more students this fall. Bus service was limited during the 2020-2021 school year due to physical distancing restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
