The Transportation Department Provides a service which enhances the Learning experience of Boulder Valley School District students. It is our goal to provide safe and efficient transportation to all the students of the district through equitable and consistent application of School Board Policies, State Department of Education and rules, and State/Federal laws and regulations.
School Bus SafetySafety is the most important aspect of Transportation. It is extremely important for each student to understand that safety is an attitude that we can display in our everyday activities. Safety is not just something we strive for, it is a way of life. That is why every driver receives over 100 hours of initial training along with annual professional development and evaluations to ensure that drivers are meeting the high standards of our school district. Students play an important role to keep their bus safe. They are responsible for their own safety and can contribute to the safety of their fellow students. When bus rules are not followed, students can distract the driver and take their focus off the road. This is dangerous for everyone!
School Bus Safety Programs
That is why the Transportation Department is working with schools to teach students about School Bus Safety. Our school buses are an extension of the classroom and that same classroom behavior is expected and should be displayed in the mornings, afternoons, and during activity trips. Through our school bus safety programs, students can learn a variety of important factors in regards to being safe on and off the bus.
By having students take an active role and becoming more aware of their safety, we will be able to improve an already stellar record of safe pupil transportation.
