Transportation Department

Request buses for field trips

The Trimble County Schools Transportation Department transports students in support of our educational goals.  Buses get students to school and home every day that school is in session and they provide transportation for field trips and after school sports activities as well.

You can reach the Transportation Director at 502 663-0076 if you have questions or concerns about transportation.

Teachers planning a field trip should first check the shared Transportation Calendar available in Outlook and web mail.  This calendar will show the number of buses already reserved for a given day.  If there are questions about bus availability, call before proceeding with plans. 

If it appears a bus is available, teachers need to get the trip approved.  The approval process is automated and begins by clicking the "NEW" button on this FIELD TRIP REQUEST FORM page. 

You will be notified when the request is approved.

NOTE THAT TEACHERS ARE STILL REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A TRIP TICKET WITH DETAILS OF THE TRIP AND A ROSTER OF ALL BUS RIDERS.  STATE LAW REQUIRES THAT THE BUS DRIVER HAVE THE TRIP TICKET AND ROSTER BEFORE BEGINNING ANY TRIP.  You can get the trip ticket form in each school office.

So, to reiterate....there are three steps you must complete for a field trip:

(1) Check the shared Transportation calendar
(2) Fill out the online Field Trip Request form (link above)
(3) Get a trip ticket from your school office and submit completed form to Transportation.
