The Sharyland ISD Transportation Department
takes great pride in the safety of transporting SISD’s students. In
order for the department to continue providing the type of service our
district has become accustomed to our drivers always keep in mind that
they are a very important person in the lives of each student that rides
their bus. Our drivers realize that it is very important that they
maintain a positive attitude and appearance while performing their job
as well as having a healthy self-image for other personnel, pupil,
parents and community.
The school bus, as it travels up and down the street
or road, is sometimes the only contact some citizens in the community
have with the local school district. What they see reflects on Sharyland
ISD. That is why our drivers take pride in always maintaining their
buses extremely clean. Our drivers also understand that as they accept
this enormous responsibility of transporting such a valuable cargo, they
are to perform their duties promptly, safely and with courtesy. Besides
the legal requirements they must meet from the state, district and
department, there are certain personal characteristics they must
possess. Friendly, emotional stability, dependability, punctuality,
honesty, fairness, respect for self and others, and good personal
appearance are some of these characteristics.

PTSI has a professionally produced public service
announcement. The spot emphasizes the life and death necessity for
traffic to stop for school bus stop signs. Pat Bailey, Transportation
Director for the Syracuse City Schools, delivers an impassioned plea to
viewers to not illegally pass a stopped school bus, quite possibly
killing a child, just to save a few moments time.
