The Transportation Department oversees the safe transport of students to and from school and on special trips. Every day, 11 buses cover 245 miles on eight regular routes and three special education routes. All buses are equipped with cameras and most have seatbelts. More than 20 percent of students ride the bus. The staff of 17 drivers participate in annual training in CPR, First Aid and epinephrine injection. In addition, the Tennessee Highway Patrol provides an annual driver safety training.
Regular Education Route Information
The times listed are estimates, but should not change by more than 5 to 7 minutes (depending on traffic and weather conditions). Initially we ask that you have your students out at their bus stops at least 5 minutes early. After the first few weeks the times should be consistent, barring any issue.
If you have questions, contact Marty Street (Transportation Supervisor) at 423-547-8000 EXT 1530.
