Dear Chardon Parents and Community,
Welcome to the Transportation Department, which is responsible for the safe and timely transportation of students to and from school along with school related events. 
Each year our buses travel over 813,000 miles covering over 88 square miles getting students to and from school. Those miles do not count the educational and athletic trips the department does annually.  We want to make certain we are providing a high quality education for your children; but realize, safety of your children on the bus must be a high priority as well. 
You can rest assured that we will coninually strive to provide you with a team of drivers who will go above and beyond all your expectations. My number one goal day to day is to make certain I am always focused on the most important thing - your child's safety. I strongly believe by working together we can achieve a lot. 
I am excited to be part of the Chardon family and look forward to working with you today and into the future. Should you need anything regarding transportation services, please do not hesitate to contact my offices.
