As a District, we have hundreds of vehicles ranging from multiple size busses and fleet vehicles. Without these assets, we cannot support our schools or students. Most of the fleet vehicles cost more than $50,000 and our busses cost as much as $135,000 each. As we move to electric buses, those costs will rise significantly.

Risk Management must approve anyone who drives a district vehicle. We pull the drivers motor vehicle (MVR) record to be sure we are entrusting our students and vehicles with someone that is responsible and has a good driving history. In addition, anyone driving a school bus requires a CDL license.

Persons driving district assets could be subject to random drug testing screens.

Driving a district vehicle without the appropriate permission could result in disciplinary action, including termination.

Prior to driving a district vehicle, the applicable district policy should be reviewed in its entirety.

If a staff member is driving their own personal vehicle to transport students, the necessary approval from Risk Management must be obtained first. There MUST be at least three people in the vehicle at all times. At no time should there be a one on one situation.
