Zonar - Pre Trip and Post Trip
As you know, student safety is paramount and a large contributor to that safety begins with the pre-trip inspection which is conducted to make sure all systems are operating as intended. Please make sure you are taking the appropriate amount of time to conduct the pre-trip and post trip inspection as they are intended.
Not only is a pre-trip inspection a good safety measure, it is also mandated by District Policy DBA (REGULATION)
Below is a video which can be used as a refresher on conducting the pre and post trip sequences.
Per Dallas ISD Human Capital Management, District departments are able to change the option of using the Web-Clock as a means of clocking in / out each day.
There have been some noticeable issues with the web-clock process in Student Transportation Services therefore the following will now take place.
Effective May 1, 2021 the web-clock will no longer be an option for clocking-in / clocking-out for Student Transportation Services employees. All staff will be required to use the biometric clock for clocking in and for clocking out. In extenuating circumstances, where the web clock is needed, supervisor approval is needed prior to using the web clock.
All staff in Student Transportation Services must clock in and clock out daily using the biometric clock.
Hand Sanitizer will continue to be available near the biometric clocks to allow individuals to sanitize after using the clock and we strongly encourage individuals to wash their hands regularly.
Brag on a Bus Driver
Macklan Bates from Lawnview Service Center
Mr. Bates AKA Mr. Sunny has been my children's bus driver for the past 4 years. His consistency as a driver for the Harry Stone Montessori Academy route provides stability for my kids and brings me peace of mind. He is great with communicating with parents and since there is an established relationship, I have the upmost confidence in his ability to provide a safe and healthy environment on the bus during a pandemic. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Sunny for the service he provides and his willingness to continue to be a bus driver during these times. Thank you Mr. Sunny!!
John Waleford from North Dallas Service Center
Wanted to speak good things about a great driver. He is kind and professional. My daughter Angel always has kind words about him,I greatly appreciate how he takes care of my baby girl..
Nino D Mitchell from Pat Raney Service Center
Mr. Mitchell is dedicated and cares about the students. He is considerate, kind, and thoughtful. I feel safe knowing that I can entrust my sons with Mr. Mitchell.
Terra Latorya Harris from Kleberg Service Center
Very friendly person and always on time to pick up the kids and always checks the students temperature and makes sure their mask is on at all times

Employee Organization Committee - The District has established the Employee Organization Committee(EOC) to enhance and improve communication with the employee organizations. The goal of the EOC is to allow employee organizations to collaborate, to address employee concerns, to provide input/ feedback, receive important District information, and to present proposals to the administration.
Employee organizations or their representatives do not have the authority to attend disciplinary meetings or represent District employees during disciplinary meetings. This does not preclude employee organizations from attending grievance proceedings in accordance with District policy.
