As such, all successful applicants to positions with the District will:

  • possess a valid California Driver's license and maintain a good driving record;

All offers of employment will be contingent upon a pre-employment physical examination performed by a licensed physician at the District's expense in order to determine if the candidate is physically able to perform the requirements of the position. Reasonable accommodation for physical disability will be made where possible.
