Bus Bulletin for ESE / Special Needs Students

Gordon FrobeniusBlog, BusBulletin, school, technology0 Comments

Bus Bulletin has recently decided to allow district transportation departments to use its notification system for ESE and Special Needs students only. Special Needs students and their parents are more likely to experience inconveniences than other students when a school bus is late or has encountered a schedule change. Using Bus Bulletin notification system can reduce those inconveniences and eliminate frustration by informing students, parents, and school administrators when their bus is experiencing a delay or a schedule change. We recognize that district transportation departments expend considerable effort to safely and conveniently transport Special Needs students and to accommodate their parents. This decision allows districts to provide more services with less effort by using Bus Bulletin notification system to quickly notify Special Needs students and their parents.
