Warren School Bus Drivers’ Pay Rate Raised

19 October 2018 Front Royal/Warren County News

The Warren County Public Schools Board voted unanimously Wednesday to raise the pay rate for bus drivers during field trips.

In the past, Warren County Schools has only paid drivers $9.50 per hour on field trips, less than drivers on the first step of the district’s bus driver salary scale receive. With the board’s vote, field trip pay will now equal that first step pay at $14 per hour. The school district is trying to move towards salary increases in order to stay competitive with other localities; Frederick and Clarke Counties pay $15 per hour to their drivers for field trips, and Shenandoah County pays $15.27 per hour. In all, the pay boost will cost the School District an estimated $14,000.
