EDUCATION BEGINS WITH TRANSPORTATION
The transportation department plays an important role in providing safe transportation for the students of Broken Arrow Public Schools (BAPS).
Currently, the transportation department has a total of 92 regular education drivers, five technology drivers and 36 special education drivers—all of whom together transport an average of 8,300 students every day. There are 213 regular education routes and 83 special education routes.
The transportation department maintains a fleet of 161 buses, 9 suburbans and other vehicles used in the district. The department’s fleet supervisor Danny Martin, who has 20 plus years of experience, oversees eight mechanics and a number of shop helpers who keep BAPS vehicles in tip-top shape.
Students residing more than 1.5 miles from their home school are eligible to ride a bus. Transportation is provided for students in grades KG-12. Pre-K students are not eligible for school bus service.
With the exception of special shuttles, i.e. Tulsa Technology, all bus routes will run approximately 30 minutes later on late start Wednesdays.
It is BAPS district policy that the parent assumes full responsibility of transportation for transfer students. Transportation will not be provided for students not living within the school of residence zone.
Rent/lease District Buses
Any outside organizations that would like to request bus transportation will need to fill out the Organization Bus Rental form and email it to Glenna Renfro, email@example.com at least 6 weeks in advance of the trip. The bus request will be submitted to a committee for review and then be presented at the next school board meeting for approval.
For more information or estimates you can contact Glenna Renfro at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 918-259-4550.
