Liza Kelly is the WISD's Human Resources Coordinator.

She says they've lost a few drivers since the start of the school year, which typically happens every year.

"We felt that the best way to attract a good amount of people to our candidate pool would be to have another job fair," Kelly says. "So we're currently looking to fill both regular positions and substitute and utility driving positions."

Kelly says they already have enough drivers to service all routes, but getting a few more would give them additional flexibility. 

If you're interested in a job as a WISD school bus driver you'll have to be 21 or older and have a valid Michigan drivers' license and a clean driving record. 

The job fair takes place from 9 to 3 Saturday at the WISD offices, 1819 S. Wagner Road in Ann Arbor.
