Henrico County Public Schools officials are still trying to fill a number of vacancies in the school system and will host a job fair Sept. 13 to meet with prospective candidates.
The event will be held at the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center, 1440 North Laburnum Avenue, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The school division is seeking candidates for bus drivers, nutrition services staff members and temporary instructional assistants.

The school division is offering newly hired bus drivers a bonus of up to $3,000, paid in installments throughout the year, when they join the transportation team. HCPS also has offered new safe driver and attendance incentives to drivers already on staff. Extended full-time contracts for up to 219 days are available for candidates interested in working during the summer.
