The Linn-Mar Community School District believes good health is important to job performance.
School bus drivers will successfully complete a physical examination by a physician or clinic designated by the district as the school board’s designated provider or at any DOT certified physician. The district will pay the cost of the examination up to the allowable amount as designated in the Transportation agreement. Drivers will be required to take a physical examination every other year and will meet all other medical and fitness requirements specified by state and federal transportation regulations.
Fitness-for-duty examinations for any employee may be required following an absence from work due to illness or injury or in other circumstances, if there is a reasonable belief that the employee is unable to perform the essential functions of the job or if there is a reasonable belief that the employee poses a direct threat to themselves or others because of a health condition.
