Mission Statement

The CLATSKANIE SCHOOL DISTRICT Transportation Department is dedicated to passenger safety. We are committed to providing the highest standards in passenger transportation. Our staff is committed in serving our district with a friendly, safe and secure transportation service, meeting our districts needs. Our school buses provide a safe ride to school for student’s that live beyond the established walking distances set forth by the school district. Current walking distances for student’s are 1 mile for elementary students ( K-6th ) and 1 ½  miles for middle/high school students ( 7th-12th).(Some areas within the 1 – 1 ½ boundary qualify for transportation under our safety supplemental plan)

Our Department consists of 23 School Buses, 16 home to school/school to home routes (which includes special needs), and a staff of 18 employees (plus sub drivers). On a normal school day, our school buses transport approximately 600 students (am/pm). Our school buses travel an average of 170,000 home to school / school to home miles per year. In addition, they also travel 27,000 miles per year on school field trips and athletic events. Our office is open from 6:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on Mondays through Friday, except holidays. Our department concentrates on safety as our number one priority. We have an excellent safety record.
