Genesee Intermediate School District operates a transportation fleet that includes 123 buses and vans that travel a total of nearly 2.5 million miles per year. Clearly, saving dollars has been essential for the ongoing stability of this operation. As a result, GISD has implemented GPS navigation and tracking systems that have helped account for equipment location and actual staff time on task. GISD has also explored bulk purchasing of fuel, implemented regional operation hubs throughout the county, and decentralized mechanical services, in addition to establishing a radio transmission system infrastructure for advanced safety, crisis management, and streamlined routing systems.

Transportation Safety Classes

Training is a significant component of GISD's Transportation Services program. The GISD Board of Education is dedicated to training bus drivers and transportation aides to ensure that all transportation staff within GISD meet Michigan Department of Education (opens in a new window) certification requirements. Training is also coordinated on a regional basis for transportation employees from Lapeer, Sanilac, Shiawassee, and Genesee Counties.

An enrollment form must be completed for each school bus driver attending a training session. Purchase orders and/or checks should be addressed and made payable to Genesee ISD, 2413 West Maple, MI 48507. School Bus Driver Curriculum Manuals are available here.

New Transportation Supervisors

Regardless of if you have already taken Beginning School Bus Driver Class (BSBD), if you are a new supervisor you must enroll in Beginning School Bus Driver Class again or take Basic Transportation Management Course (BTMC) through the Michigan Association of Pupil Transportation (MAPT). It is also sometimes available at the MAPT annual conference. If you choose the BTMC path, the Genesee Intermediate School District training agency must sign off on your enrollment.
