Providing safe transportation for children to and from school and school-related activities is the top priority of the Elgin Local Schools Transportation Department.
The Transportation Department is located at the Administration Office on Keener Road South. The department handles the transportation needs of students between home and school and on school related trips. We currently run 11 double routes each day and one van route. Most of the routes involve a run to a secondary, then elementary building. The department is staffed with 20 buses, 11 drivers, 1 bus mechanic, and 1 coordinator. The department also relies on a number of persons willing to substitute drive and aide.
Bus safety is also a priority, and drivers work in partnership with district teachers and parents to educate students about proper behavior. Children are expected to obey their drivers at all times. Failure to obey drivers or abide by rules may result in disciplinary action or the loss of riding privileges.
