Has the school ever considered putting some sort of tracker on the buses? For instance there could be an app, where the students are able to type in some information, such as the bus #, which would then tell us where the bus is, and how much time we have before it arrives to our bus stop. This way it would be a lot easier to be able to know how much time we have, and be able to make the bus on time and be ready early. Thanks.

A. In 2017, the district did test an App which would allow parents and students to track their bus location/arrival time. Unfortunately the app did not perform as we had hoped. We experienced a significant time difference on some of the buses from anywhere between 2-9 minutes, this would have created more issues for the department but more significantly for the parents and students. We will continue to look at this technology and hope to have something in place in the near future.
