Bus Drivers and Bus Monitor Needed

Krise Transportation currently has positions available for school bus drivers, bus monitor, and substitute bus/van drivers. If you are interested, contact Earl Hogue, manager, at (724) 901-7126.

Bus Safety Equipment

All vehicles are equipped with GPS systems. The GPS is classified as “live” data. The contractor will be able to see where the vehicles are and what time they arrive at your child’s bus stop. Also, the buses will have three video cameras installed in each bus. Those cameras will be in the front, middle and back.

Rules of Conduct for Students Riding WASD Buses

School buses are extensions of regular school facilities and students are expected to conduct themselves on the buses as they do when they are in the school building. School bus drivers have the same responsibility and authority as the classroom teachers to enforce rules and regulations. Students who do not obey the bus driver will be referred to the principal for further action. Remember, transportation by school bus is a privilege, not a right and this privilege can be suspended for any student who violates the rules. Click here for the rules of conduct.

Alternate Bus Stops

Students are not permitted to ride the bus home with friends. WASD Board Policy #810 Transportation Child Care Section states the following: The school district will cooperate with working parents and reasonable child care arrangements. This means the child will be picked up and/or discharged at the same bus stop on the same bus route EVERY DAY (Monday through Friday). The child may be picked up at one location and dropped off at a different location; once established, these locations may not be altered unless there exists extenuating circumstances, as presented by the parent(s) and/or guardian(s) and approved by the Superintendent, that necessitated such a change. Parent(s) and/or guardian(s) may request, in writing, that a student be reassigned to a different bus stop or bus route. Each written request must be on the appropriate form available from any office. Each written request will be considered and evaluated on an individual basis. Additional buses will not be added or established route altered to accommodate an individual transportation request. Requests for students to ride on an alternate bus or be assigned an alternate bus stop will be approved only if the following conditions are met:

1. There is space on the alternate bus

2. The requested stop is already designated on an established bus route

3. The bus route does not have to be changed or extended

4. The change does not increase the cost to the school district
