Bus Safety

Dear Parents,

The Douglas County School District Transportation Department is excited to announce a new innovation in student bus safety.  We are committed to the safety of our students, which is why we are pleased to offer this new technology.  ZPass + gives parents the ability to better track their students activities when it comes to riding the bus.  

ZPass+ gives parents the reassurance that their student has made it to and from school safely by sending a message every time their child swipes in or out of the bus. The service is being offered to all participants of the regular ZPass program, at no additional cost.

How does it work?

  1. Rider scans card while entering and exiting the bus*

  2. We record the data, time and location of the bus

  3. ZPass+ sends real-time text or email updates to parent.

It is really that simple.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
