(+) Balancing The Transportation Equation (-)

Transportation’s mission is to provide safe, orderly and efficient transportation services.  Accomplishing this requires consistent and effective coordination between operations, routing and scheduling, maintenance and parts, and administrative support personnel.  There are multiple parts to the transportation equation.  Professionals and Paraprofessionals to include Bus Drivers, Safety Assistants, Routing Personnel, Transportation Specialist Assistants, Transportation Managers/Specialists, Mechanics, Parts and Inventory Managers, Cost Clerks, Administrative and Management personnel all make the wheels on the bus go round and round.  This equation, this balancing act, this collective group of dedicated committed individuals ensure transportation meets the expectations of parents, school administrators and students that we transport to and from school each day school is in session. When you add it all up, the answer is we care for the children that are placed in our care each and every trip we make.
