TASD Transportation Compact


The mission of the TASD Transportation Department is to provide the safest, most efficient transportation ride to and from school for our students. This requires teamwork and shared understanding of rules and regulations. In order to accomplish our mission, Texarkana Arkansas School District has established procedures outlined in the Parent/Student Handbook.
As a parent, I will:
 Read the Transportation Handbook.
 Discuss the importance of bus safety and conduct with my children.
 Understand the consequences that my child will face if they do not follow the bus rules
 Do my best to make sure my child is at the bus stop at least ten (10) minutes before the scheduled stop time.

As a student, I will:
 Read (if appropriate) the Parent/Student Handbook.
 Obey the rules and regulations found in the Parent/Student Handbook.

As a school, we will:
 Train all bus drivers to operate their bus in the safest of manners.
 Do our best to run buses on time.
 Provide parents with a copy of the Parent/Student Handbook.

THIS DOCUMENT MUST BE SIGNED AND RETURNED TO THE RESPECTIVE SCHOOL IN ORDER TO RECEIVE TRANSPORTATION SERVICES THROUGH TASD TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT.
I, the undersigned, have read and understand the information contained in the Transportation Department Compact. We acknowledge that the opportunity to ride a school bus is a privilege (A.C.A. § 6-19-119 (b)). Furthermore, we understand that the basic operating norms stated in the Compact for Success are there to support the mission of student safety and well-being for all students in providing bus transportation services. With that goal in mind, we understand that a student’s bus privileges may be revoked in accordance with the norms stated in the Compact for Success.
