Transportation

The Department of Transportation is to provide safe, professional, and efficient transportation for students to and from school; and all extracurricular activities and school-related events. This work directly supports the teaching and learning instructional program for the success of the school district.

Providing safe, reliable, on-time service requires professional drivers, well-maintained buses and a competent support and management staff. As of 2014, the Department manages 23 buses and 13 drivers to transport more than 829 students on a daily basis -  64% of the district's 1,300 students ride the school bus.

All of our drivers meet Missouri state standards for school-bus licensing to include: a commercial driver's license (CDL), annual physical and mandatory training requirements. The Transportation Department ensures that drivers meet all qualifications and maintains the respective records of compliance.

All school buses are inspected daily with a pre-trip inspection for safety and performance. This is in addition to bi-annual state required inspections. The Transportation Department manages all bus maintenance.
