The Arkansas Association of Pupil Transportation presented the Mansfield School District with the 2018 Safety Award during the yearly AAPT conference in Hot Springs. This award is a great honor for the district as it highlights the maintenance, quality and cleanliness of the bus fleet.
“We’ve come a long way,” stated Mansfield School Superintendent Robert Ross. And, indeed they have. The district is leading the state in pioneering a bus leasing program. It is through this program that the Transportation Department obtained a new, top of the line bus worth $150,000. In addition to the new bus, the transportation department was able to purchase a new car for district employees to utilize on school business.
Congratulations to the MSD’s Transportation Department on receiving this prestigious award.
