Durham School Services COVID-19 Response

FAQ's Click HERE

For more than 100 years, Durham School Services has been committed to the health and safety of our employees and passengers and this commitment has only strengthened during this pandemic. A number of our customers have asked questions about how we are responding to COVID-19 and how we will provide student transportation services once schools reopen. While we did not provide any student transportation services during the school shutdown, our Public Transit Division continued to provide service and we relied upon guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to direct our actions to keep our employees and passengers safe. This experience will help us as we resume student transportation services.

Durham School Services is a member of the National School Transportation Association (NSTA), which is the national association that represents private providers of student transportation services. Several members of our Executive Team are members of the NSTA Board of Directors and hold leadership positions within the association. Our Chief Safety Officer is the chair of NSTA’s Safety and Security Committee. Our participation in NSTA and our experience providing student transportation services in over 500 districts in 39 states gives us direct access to industry best practices in safety and security.

The answers to the questions regarding employee safety, student safety, and vehicle cleanliness reflect our current thinking and approach, based upon CDC guidance and our recent transit experience. We are monitoring the CDC website daily for additional information as well as information from state and federal governments and are committed to applying the latest thinking on how to provide safe transportation, as it becomes available. We also expect to engage in a great deal of dialogue with you, our partner, to prepare for school to resume. We need to be completely aligned on our process to give parents confidence in their student’s safety while riding the bus to school.

Durham School Services

CGUHSD contracts with Durham School Services for transportation services. We are committed to serve you safely and to provide the personal attention you need for successful transportation services. Our operations focus on our five core values: Safety, Customers, People, Community, and Excellence.

Safety is our top priority, which is why we developed Durham Bus Tracker (DBT) to provide you with a greater sense of comfort about your student’s transportation.

User-friendly application with the ability to manage and view all of your student’s buses, routes, and locations in one grouped view.    
 
Secure
Requires a password-protected account along with verifying your student’s school-issued ID number, city, and state to access the location of their routes.

Real-Time

Bus Information

The Board authorizes the administration to provide regular school bus transportation to and from school for students: with disabilities who require transportation, as indicated in their respective IEP; living within a one (1) mile radius of the school where hazardous or difficult routes exist and where arrangements cannot be provided; and who live more than a mile and a half (1.5) from the school.

Activity Buses

Activity buses are available for students who participate in after-school activities and tutoring.

Bus Conduct

The school bus is an extension of the school day and the same rules apply regarding discipline and general conduct. Additionally, students must remain properly seated, keep the aisle clear, and ensure that all parts of their body (i.e., hands, heads, etc.) remain inside the bus. Specific rules regarding school bus conduct are posted on each bus and available from each school. Violations of the rules or safety are grounds for denial of bus transportation privileges and/or discipline.

Bus Rules

Student transportation is a qualified right, dependent upon good behavior. Student behavior on buses must promote safety, as bus drivers are responsible for the safe operation of the bus. Students shall observe district policies, regulations, and rules while being transported. Students who jeopardize the safety of others may forfeit their bus privileges.

Personal Transportation Rules

The following rules are to be observed by users of bikes, hoverboards, scooters, skateboards, skates, and similar devices entering and leaving school and are subject to confiscation. Students may not cut/ride through the bus loop or parking lot. Once students are on campus, they must walk and lock them up. These devices cannot be used on campus at any time. When travelling to and from school, all ordinances concerning the above must be observed. Students who violate city and school transportation guidelines may jeopardize the privilege of bringing them to campus. A serious injury to oneself and others can be prevented through observation of these rules. It is strongly recommended that all students wear safety helmets.
