McCracken County Schools fixes bus radio service

Staff report

Aside from a hiccup involving the district's radio system, transportation ran smoothly at McCracken County Schools this week, a supervisor said.

Teresa Buzanis, district coordinator for transportation, said Thursday, the district's second day of school, that bus services were on track for running on schedule soon.

"Of course, during the first week of school everything is a lot more delayed," she said.

Buzanis she said staff members at elementary schools take extra measures to ensure students board the correct buses during the first week of classes, which makes the routes run slightly longer for a few days.

"We don't mind that delay, just taking care of the students," she said.

On the first day of school Wednesday, however, drivers did encounter a problem with the radio system. The repeater went down sometime during the summer, which Buzanis said drivers wouldn't have been able to know until buses ran when school started.

She said it's been years since the district has had problems with the radio repeater. She said the district contacted Jackson Purchase 2 Way Radio service and it was repairing the repeater within 15 minutes of the call.

Buzanis said the district strives to have no route last longer than 55 minutes.

McCracken County Schools has 52 routes that run twice each school day.
