Over the past two weeks, the district has sent several communications regarding late buses affecting numerous CISD campuses. I want to assure you that our team has been in constant communication with Dallas County Schools (DCS) since the beginning of the school year regarding their inconsistencies in services to our district. Due to illness and terminations, our bus fleet remains under-staffed by DCS.
At this time, we cannot change our transportation services for the current school year due to cost constraints and logistical reasons. We are required to continue our contract with Dallas County Schools' transportation services for our students.
I have received several inquiries about the drivers who were involved in the DCS terminations for traffic violations, recently covered by a local news channel. I am pleased to say I have been informed that none of the drivers involved have worked in our district.
For assistance in determining your child's bus route or for more information, please visit: http://www.coppellisd.com/Domain/91 or call Transportation Services at 214.496.8090.
We appreciate your patience during this trying time with Dallas County Schools.
