A: Stock Transportation must adhere to the same rules and regulations governing the operation of school buses as your school district. As a private company, there are additional requirements we must meet that a school district does not have to worry about. For example, Safety inspectors and Government authorities are more rigorous in their examination of our employees and in the inspection of our buses. We must meet higher standards than most school districts.
A: Current transportation employees are an important concern for us too. It is in our best interest to hire as many of these employees who meet our employment standards as possible. Because they are familiar with the community, the parents, and the children, it’s a win-win scenario to be able to hire current staff. These employees receive first consideration for all available positions. The drivers who come to work for Stock will receive a competitive wage package as agreed to by the school district.
A: We provide a competitive benefits package, customized for each client.
A: Student discipline is a critical issue for both the company and the school district. Keeping this in mind, we strongly believe that a partnership approach regarding student management is key to enhancing the transportation experience for all students. We customize a student management plan that is based on the school district’s discipline policy, while incorporating best practices we’ve identified over the years through our experience. We rely on close cooperation between the school site staff and the driver for effective implementation. Our experience also tells us that this formula is highly successful in keeping discipline issues that might cross your desk to a minimum.
