Independent, Comprehensive Review of Transportation System

The district would like to provide an update to the public on how it is handling potential issues with bus maintenance and safety that were recently brought to its attention. 

The safety of our students has always been our highest priority. We would never knowingly put our children at risk.  We take student safety extremely seriously and have decided to ask for an independent, comprehensive review of our transportation system, which has been managed by a third-party vendor since 2007.  We will welcome outside experts to investigate and assess all aspects of our transportation program, with a special focus on student safety and best practices. 

D300 Director of Safety Gary Chester will be the district’s point person in working with the independent investigators.  They will take a close look at bus routing and scheduling, driver training and supports, vehicle maintenance and inspections, and communication procedures, as well as compliance with all relevant laws and district policies. The investigators will tell us how long they need to complete their independent, comprehensive review.  We look forward to receiving and publicly sharing their feedback to ensure that student safety remains our highest priority.
