Transportation 
 
The Knox County School District offers daily transportation services for students throughout the school district. Bus drivers pick up children in the mornings and take them home in the afternoons. Additional runs are made for preschool students, students with disabilities, and extracurricular and co curricular events. All drivers must qualify for the Commercial Drivers License (CDL) and also have annual physical and random drug tests. Upon being hired, drivers have motor vehicle and criminal records checks and a TB skin test. Intense state-mandated training is an ongoing process for all drivers. A Board of Education adopted Transportation Manual delineates all aspects of this major operation. The District's transportation facility is located at Boone Heights, adjacent to Central Elementary School.

The Transportation Department would like to remind parents and motorists of the slogan,  "Safety First - Schedule Second".    Whenever you see our buses stopped, pulling out, or coming to a stop, please use caution - we haul precious cargo. 

Inclement Weather
Transportation officials inspect area roads during periods of inclement weather to ensure the safety of our students, student motorists, and staff.   Any decisions concerning school closings or delays are relayed by the district's Public Relations department to local media outlets.   Parents/guardians should not directly contact the bus garage to learn of school cancellations.
