Welcome to the Transportation Department

  • It is the goal of the Coolidge Unified School District to provide the students of this District with a safe and secure transportation service.  This goal can only be achieved through the combined efforts of students, parents/guardians, school staff, and transportation staff working together to clearly communicate and enforce transportation rules.

    The privilege of receiving transportation services is dependent upon students continually complying with expectations.  Because privileges can be revoked, student knowledge of the expectations is essential.  In order to keep students and parents/guardians informed, these expectations/rules can be found in the Regulations/Expectations (Transportation Forms webpage) and Student Handbook: 

    • General eligibility requirements;
    • Behavioral expectations for students; and
    • Consequences for not meeting behavior expectations.

    If you have any questions about the information or transportation program, please contact the Director of Plant Operations.
