Answers
1)  Q My special needs child is sick and not going to school. Who do I call?
A
Call (623) 474-6645, give us the student's name, school of attendance and how many days they will not be transported. You will also need to notify the school of attendance.
2)  Q I just moved into the school district and do not know where to register my child?
A
You can call (623) 474-6645 and tell them your new address. They can enter it into our routing system and let you know which school of attendance your child should register at and if they are a qualified bus rider.
3)  Q There is a bus stop located in front of my property and students destroy my yard on a daily basis. What can I do?
A
Call the Police Department or Sheriff's Office and file a vandalism crime report. You can call the Transportation Department at (623) 474-6645 and let us know what is happening. We will be more than happy to give you the school contact information or call the school involved for you, so they can investigate the situation.

4)  Q How is my child behaving on the school bus?
A
The best thing to do is ask the School Bus Operator on how they are doing.
5)  Q Can the Bus Operator stop in front of my house?
A
The Arizona Minimum Standards for School Bus Operators states that a school bus operator can only stop to load and unload passengers at designated bus stops. We are required by the state to transport Specials Needs students (if specified in their IEP) and drop them off at their home. This year we have reduced some stops and routes due to economic difficulties. We took into account the safety of all students. These changes will reduce costs, and make the Transportation Department more efficient. If you should have any questions regarding a bus stop location please feel free to contact our Transportation Department at (623) 474-6646.
6)  Q My child is getting bullied on the bus. Who do I notify?
A
Please notify the school of attendance. They will investigate the situation and inform the Transportation Department.
7)  Q Why don't our buses have Safety Belts?
A
On school buses, occupant protection is provided by "compartmentalization", not safety belts. Compartmentalization is the name for the protective envelope created by strong, closely-spaced seats that have energy-absorbing high back seats that protect occupants in the event of a crash.

School buses also have other features that contribute to the high level of safety they provide each occupant. Features such as emergency exits, roof structure, fuel systems, and body joint strength make the bus stronger, larger, heavier, and safer than most other vehicles on the road today.
