Driver Training and Recognition
Harrison Hills School Bus Drivers attend a yearly four hour pre-service training. Yearly, all drivers must pass a physical examination, hearing and drug test in order to meet the qualifications of a school bus driver. In addition, every six years drivers must attend and pass a twelve hour driver pre-service training as required by the State of Ohio, complete state required recertification requirement through a bus pre-trip inspection and driver evaluation through our district on board instructor. Before every trip, drivers complete a pre-trip inspection to ensure the bus is safe to transport students.
At this facility, we have the ability to house all of our district buses and service equipment. Here, our mechanics are able to service and repair most of the daily and yearly needs of our school bus fleet. With the construction of this facility in 2013, we are now readily able to complete all yearly inspections and unannounced spot inspections of our entire bus fleet through the State of Ohio Highway Patrol.
