The FSSD Transportation Department transports students safely to and from school and school activities. Drivers are expected to display a positive attitude, strong character, willingness to learn, and to be cooperative and courteous with other school personnel, parents, and students.

The Transportation Department engages in continuous improvement. As concerns and special requests are presented, the Department reviews each one for safety and efficiency.  Improvements are made based on student safety and the needs of the school district. Students, parents and employees provide important feedback and are encouraged to share ideas to provide better service for all.

The Transportation Department contributes to the district vision of “Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All” by ensuring students arrive and depart from school safely and efficiently. 


Riding the Bus

The FSSD Transportation Department oversees a fleet of 35 buses that carry pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students to eight schools. All bus drivers are trained in CPR and first aid and are provided annual training for school bus operation, as required by the state. Getting children safely to school is of utmost concern to the FSSD and many safety precautions are in place. If your child will be riding the bus, please note the following:

  • Students should be waiting for their bus at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time. Bus times are approximate due to factors such as variable ridership, traffic tie-ups, mechanical difficulties, etc.
  • Students should stand at least 5 feet away from the bus stop staging area so that they are not in harm’s way of other vehicle traffic.
  • Students should NEVER walk behind a school bus while boarding or de-boarding the bus. The bus driver needs to have a clear view of the student at all times.
  • Video monitoring equipment is on all buses to address student behavior issues.
