Wage increase approved for bus monitors

Oct 1, 2021

The Wareham School Committee voted at its Sept. 30 meeting to raise the pay for bus monitors from minimum wage — $13.50 an hour — to $16 per hour.

The raise is intended to help the transportation department fill the bus monitor positions it currently has open, and follows a raise in pay for bus drivers this August.

The district is currently looking to hire five bus monitors and three bus drivers. For information about those and other job openings in the school district, visit https://www.warehamps.org/domain/31.
