Imagine.  You are a member of a team that transports approximately 27,000 students daily to their designated schools within Cumberland County. You greet each student on your school bus with a smile while recognizing that you play a key role in ensuring that they meet and exceed their academic and behavioral expectations. For many Cumberland County Schools bus drivers, this is the important role that they play on a daily basis. In celebration of Love the Bus Month, a nationally recognized event sponsored by the American School Bus Council (ASBC), Cumberland County Schools recognizes the Transportation Department for their continuous commitment to safety.

With 435 traditional and Exceptional Children buses traveling 27,500 miles a day, the Transportation Department works diligently to ensure the safety of each child during their commute to and from school. Under the direction of Executive Director Dianne Grumelot, the department is comprised of five area supervisors and four routing analysts that collaborate with administrators and drivers across the county. Each school bus is equipped with the Synovia GPS system to assist the department in identifying geographical locations, vehicle performance, and maintenance needs. The CCS Transportation Department also facilitates an annual summer training session with administrators and bus drivers to share the safety resources available including a dispatch representative and 20 mechanics that are trained to respond effectively to maintenance concerns.

CCS bus drivers accept an important responsibility and are therefore recognized for their hard work. Administrators and EC Lead Drivers submit monthly nominations to the Area Supervisors
for the Area Driver of the Month award based on the driver’s interactions with students, exemplary performance, and adherence to the CCS Bus Driver Agreement. The Transportation  Department then selects one Area Driver of the Month to be recognized as the CCS Bus Driver of the Month who is awarded by the Auxiliary Services Committee.

It is inevitable that the CCS Transportation Department greatly contributes to the overall success of the Cumberland County Schools system. Their commitment to safety and their dedication to their profession positively influence the many students that they serve. The department continues to impact lives one mile at a time.
