School Board Approves Bus Driver Pay Scale Increase To Offer Highest Driver Salaries In York County
School Board Approves Bus Driver Pay Scale Increase
Posted on 11/16/2017

At the November 14 school board meeting, the board voted to increase the bus driver pay scale to a base rate of $12.80/hour with step increases up to $22.63/hour. The new pay scale will take effect on December 2, 2017 and will be applied to all current and future driver salaries.

This increase makes Fort Mill the highest paying district among school districts in York County. The decision was made to increase the pay scale based on the current challenges school districts are facing in hiring and retaining drivers across the state and nation.

“Bus drivers play a key role in the education of our students,” said Superintendent Chuck Epps. “Not only are they responsible for the safe transportation of students but they can also set a positive tone for the student’s day. We believe this change will allow us to be more competitive in our efforts to hire and retain drivers.”
