Shield Rd Closure to Affect TransportationJune 8-16, 2017
Due to the June 12th closure of Shield Rd, some buses will be altering their routes beginning June 8th. The Transportation Department is requesting that all parents of students who ride buses please have patience during this time (6/8-6/16). Buses that are being diverted may be running later then usual in the afternoons. These buses will have detailed notices sent home with students.  Parents and guardians should continue to arrive for afternoon pickup at your bus stop at your regular time as we may still arrive on time.  Please plan accordingly and be considerate of our bus drivers as they are enter and exit bus loops at all schools.

The safety of all of our students is our number one priority.  Please feel free to contact the transportation department at any time with any questions/concerns at 734-424-4190.


Welcome to the Dexter Community Schools Transportation Department. 

One of the goals of the transportation department is to assist Dexter Community Schools in realizing its vision: Champion Learning ---Develop, Educate, and Inspire! The Transportation Department's employees are the first district employees to greet your students in the morning and the last district employees to see them in the evening. We do not simply transport students from home to school and back again. We are an extension of the learning process and provide a social networking opportunity for students. We strive to safely transport students so that they are emotionally prepared to be educated.
