MISD Hiring Drivers

Dear Parents/Guardians and Bus Riders:
The Midlothian Independent School District offers the privilege of bus transportation to and from school as a courtesy service for all-eligible students in the district. Eligible students are defined by the state as those who reside at least two miles from the school they attend as measured by the nearest practical route.
Effective transportation service requires the cooperation among bus drivers and staff, administrators, students and parent/guardians. Every effort will be made to promote safe, comfortable and pleasant transportation service, while maintaining an appropriate level of efficiency.
In order to meet the conditions as outlined by the State and promote safe, prompt movement of all eligible students, Midlothian ISD has Bus Safety Guidelines and Rules which are included in the Student Safe Rider Handbook [PDF]. We ask that you read and discuss the contents of this handbook with your student so he or she has a clear understanding of the responsibilities and expectations of riding the school bus.
Authorized bus stops will be established within a reasonable walking distance of the home of every student eligible for transportation services. Midlothian ISD Transportation has set walking distance for elementary student bus stops .25 (1/4) mile from home and secondary student walk distance is at .50 (1/2) mile from home.
It is the responsibility of the Transportation Department to set designated bus stops with student safety, fairness and consistency in mind. All students should load and unload at their designated bus stop only.
Please contact the Transportation Office at 972-775-1805 if there are any questions or concerns about the MISD transportation system. Thank you for your cooperation and support regarding the care and safety of all our children.
