Thank you to the nearly 740 families who provided feedback on our Transportation Survey last month. The purpose of the survey was to gather input to help us lead improvements with our new transportation provider, Dairyland Buses Inc. Below, please find the data results from the survey. Charts were created based on the different scales used in each question.
In order to ensure that our transportation services are continuously improving, we are asking that you please complete the survey again, and provide us feedback related to your experience with the transportation service over the last seven days. We are requesting contact information in order to follow up with you should the need arise. If you have more than one child in attendance, feel free to fill out the survey more than once. 2019 MNS Transportation Feedback Survey.
The decision to switch to a new transportation provider was difficult. Critical factors considered in the decision included safety (current buses are equipped with 4 cameras) and customer service. Transportation is an important service to our schools and families and we are fully committed to a successful transition. We are thankful for the improvements made since the start of the school year, and continue to work daily with Dairyland, Transfinder (routing software), and Infinite Campus to improve service to our students and communication with our parents. Recently, we began supporting Dairyland’s efforts to notify schools and parents through Infinite Campus emails when bus drivers are changed due to long-term absences, vacations, or the permanent replacement of a driver. We greatly appreciate your patience and support during this transition.
