Bus route information for the 2017-2018 school year is available in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Access the parent portal, then click on Forms for your child’s bus number, stop location and time. If your child’s bus information is not in PowerSchool or does not seem correct, please contact the GCCS Transportation Department at (812) 288-4809 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents can also access their child’s bus route information through the innovative mobile device app and website entitled, Here Comes the Bus®.
Here Comes the Bus allows you to view the real-time location of your child’s general education school bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer. With it, you will have the information you need to send your children to the bus stop at just the right time, helping to protect them from inclement weather and other roadside dangers. What’s more, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your children haven’t missed the bus.
Here Comes the Bus is free for the 2017-18 school year, and enables you to:
- See the location of your child’s bus both before and after school
- Confirm that your child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop and at school
- Receive a push notification or email message when the bus is a certain distance from your stop, and more
Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions™, makers of the GPS-tracking technology used by Greater Clark County Schools to increase safety and cost savings as it relates to our school bus fleet.
