Carmel Clay Schools owns and operates its own fleet of school buses. Bus capacities range from 10 passengers to 84 passengers. Transportation service is available to all eligible Carmel Clay School students who live within the school district.
Carmel Clay Schools employs an automated bus routing system. VersaTrans, the system from Tyler Technologies Inc., automates many functions previously performed manually. Student data is downloaded from the mainframe Student Database to the VersaTrans server and processed to update the VersaTrans student file. Addresses are matched to a map of the district and students are assigned to bus stops. Student stop assignments are displayed on a parent's and student's myCCS page using the transportation widget. Stop assignments are made automatically approximately 24 hours after a student's residence is established in the mainframe student database.
CCS is accepting applications for bus drivers. CCS offers a paid in-house training program. Drivers who have achieved a Commercial Drivers License start driving duties as substitute drivers with the opportunity to obtain a Contracted driving position.
The brochure Kids the School Bus and You from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides parents, children, and motorists helpful lifesaving tips to make traveling to and from the school bus stop and in school buses safer for everyone.
