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.
Bus transportation is an important function of the Dexter Community School District. Bus transportation is not mandated by law, but provided as a service to the students of the District. In order for transportation to work, we must have the cooperation of parents, students, drivers and administration of the District.
We believe the information contained in the following policies will help everyone understand the complexity and importance of pupil transportation. The Michigan Department of Education, the Legislature, and the Michigan State Police also develop rules and regulations that govern the activities of the Transportation Department.

Please note: video cameras may be in use on any Dexter Community School District transportation vehicle.
