The Transportation Department is responsible for daily bus operations, dispatching buses, fleet maintenance, safety, and driver training. Williamson County Schools currently has the eighth largest transportation fleet in the State of Tennessee. These units drive approximately 16,500 miles each day or over 2.9 million miles yearly just taking students to and from school. These miles do not include athletic trips, mid-day special education programs, field trips, or special summer programs. Williamson County Schools recognize the transportation of students as an essential part of our public education system, requires the cooperation, and devoted efforts of many individuals. It is the goal of Williamson County Schools to provide eligible students the safest and most efficient transportation service in the country.
Transportation for students requiring special services is available for eligible students. Special services is determined at the student’s IEP meeting when the student cannot use regular bus service due to physical, health or behavioral needs. Services are requested through teachers, school administration, and the Student Support Services department. Upon written approval from SSS, the transportation department will assign the student to a bus. It is the goal to have bus assignment arranged approximately five (5) school days after the receipt of approved request by the SSS. Parents/guardians will be notified by the bus driver of the approximate pickup and drop off times.
