Bus Drivers Needed

The district is in need of bus drivers. Since school started this year, it has been “all hands on deck” in the Transportation Department, with every person with a CDL license pitching in to get students to and from school. To help recruit more driver candidates, we are running 500 commercials on certain Bright House channels. Click on the image to see the commercial, and please tell potential candidates about the opportunities for work in Pasco County Schools. If you would like more information on what it takes to be a bus driver, click here.

Best Hour of Code Ever

The Hour of Code is coming, December 7-13. Thanks to educators like you, the Hour of Code keeps changing the world. This year can be a turning point for computer science in our schools, with new tutorials, new prizes, and you. Together, we want to reach 100,000 classrooms worldwide. I hope you’ll join us to prove anybody can learn, and every young person deserves to learn how to build technology that will impact everything in their future. Click here to sign up for the Hour of Code.

What is the Hour of Code?

It’s a grassroots movement that’s already introduced 100 million students to the basics of computer science. Participate with any one-hour coding activity that students love no experience needed!
