JOIN OUR TEAM! Be the first smile our students see in the morning and the last smile they see as they head home. CPS is hiring bus drivers! We are looking for people who love kids, who value an opportunity to positively influence the lives of our students, and see these young people as precious cargo. 🚌District bus drivers work either four or five-hour routes per day. In the past, driving positions have proven to be a good fit for many retirees looking to make extra money while keeping them active in the community. In addition, it is a good income source for college students or parents looking for extra money. Drivers come from diverse backgrounds, but they have one common thread; they enjoy being around and helping the kids. 🚌 If you are interested in becoming a Claremore Public School bus driver, please contact Jennifer Hayes, CPS Transportation Director, for additional details. The job does require a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) with school and passenger endorsements. The school district will reimburse these costs and starting pay begins at $15 per hour.

ATTENTION current 8th - 11th graders. It's that time of year again! Claremore High School's Zebra Advisement Program (ZAP) is in full swing to begin next year's enrollment process. This program helps our 5A school have a small school environment by pairing a small set of students in a specific grade level to one teacher. Our students remain with the same ZAP advisor for their entire career at CHS. They meet once a month to cover information concerning career exploration, interviewing, college applications, and scholarship information during the fall term. Students will now meet with their parents and ZAP advisor to finalize their schedules. This conference is an excellent time for the parents to ask questions, see their students' transcripts, and be involved in their children's educational process. With a 95% parent attendance rate from year to year, ZAP has become a Claremore High School tradition. This year's ZAP appointments will occur on March 25th from 4p - 8p at CHS. Most parents have scheduled their meeting, but if you have not, there is still time. Parents may email their students' ZAP advisors directly to schedule an appointment. If you do not know who their ZAP Advisor is, contact the counseling department at CHS. Check out the course description book in preparation for your meetings.
