Chanute Public Schools employ professional drivers and mechanics who are trained to treat safety as their primary responsibility. Every child‘s safety is important.  School bus travel remains the safest way to send children to school.  The State of Kansas continues to ensure that 100 percent of school buses receive safety inspections every year. Bus Drivers are required to be certified in First Aid, CPR and Defensive Driving.
