July 8--  The Georgia Department of Education has selected the Treutlen County school system to receive its Pupil Transportation Safety Award.

treutlenbusThe Treutlen school system is one of 16 systems in the state named by a panel of judges based on issues impacting school bus safety.

School Superintendent Dr. Bradley Anderson says, "It really comes from the hard work of our drivers and our Transportation Director Miss Alice Heath who does a meticulous job making sure our records are correct and making sure our folks go above and beyond in terms of the safety requirements of the Georgia Department of Education to make sure our students have safe travel."

"This award looked at our safety record and our maintenance records that we have to keep on each bus," he said, and noted the system recognizes the need to attract and retain good bus drivers, "We have re-examined our bus driver salary scales and have been able to give incremental increases based on years of service.  We believe good pay is one of the things, but we make sure we've got a good fit and find the right person to be a bus driver and sometimes that can be a challenge. Alice Heath has done a fabulous job of making those matches come together."

"This award certifies and assures parents that we do have a safe mode of transportation and do our very best and take pride in that safety everyday," the superintendent said.
