School transportation is an integral part of today's educational system. The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction takes a three-pronged approach to school transportation:

  1. Safety- The first and highest priority is the safe delivery of students to and from school. In North Dakota where transportation of school children is a fact of life, it becomes imperative that all possible safety precautions be applied.
  2. Bus Driver- The school bus driver is expected to be a fully qualified, trained, manager of students, and a representative of the school district.
  3. Reporting- Districts are responsible for reporting their bus driver training, as well as their Vehicle Inventory and Route information (in STARS) for proper State reimbursement.
