George Dickerson
Director

The Transportation Department’s primary goal is to safely transport all the district’s children at all times.  There are 34 buses in the fleet and 26 additional support vehicles.  In personnel, there are 32 drivers, 8 crossing guards, 2 mechanics, 1 transportation technician, 1 secretary, and the coordinator.  The district transports an average daily total number of 1,420 students to and from school.  The Department transports these children 197,000 miles per year and the activities and field trips are separately computed at 142,300 miles per year.  The Department takes great pride in its community service participation.  For the past 12 years, the Wyoming Department of Transportation has been conducting their Commercial Driver License Exams at the bus barn. From September 1996 to February 2002, the Transportation Department employees drove 1,653,000 miles without a preventable accident, driving students to and from school and on activity and field trips. In May, 1996, the Uinta County Emergency Management Agency conducted emergency response drills to a Radiological leak from a simulated semi-trailer truck accident that could possibly occur on the interstate.  In July 1998, the Life Flight Helicopter from the University of Utah hospital landed at the bus barn and training was provided to local EMT’s and law enforcement personnel.  Each fall the Uinta County Sheriff's Office conducts evasive driving training for all their staff on the large concrete pad.
