National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety.
Dan Schultz, Southeast Polk Director of Transportation shared, “We are committed to providing safe and dependable transportation for our students to and from school as well as to off-campus activities. Approximately 3575 Southeast Polk students rely on our team of dedicated bus drivers and mechanics every school day. Our buses and other vehicles cover 110 square miles, traveling a combined 840,000 miles per year.”
The Southeast Polk Transportation Department is an active participant of the National Standards Committee of the National Congress for School Transportation which sets stringent standards for school buses to assure the safety of our young passengers and the other drivers with who we share the roads.
