New Student Tracking System for 9-R Buses

Durango School District 9-R is proud to announce the implementation of the Student Tracking System on our school buses. All students will be issued Student IDs this year that will work interactively with our bus tracking system, as well as other systems in the school, such as the library. Using the cards, students will scan when they get on and off the buses. This new safety feature allows the Transportation Department, our schools, parents, and guardians to follow bus schedules and routes, and whether or not their student is on the bus. With the Student Tracking System, the school district is able to increase its safety measures and identification processes for all students.
