INDIANA (WTHI) - 12,000 kids in Vigo County ride the bus to school everyday.
The Indiana State Police department has unveiled a new website to provide transparency for parents. It's an effort to keep them in the loop on how their child's ride stacks up.
The Indiana State Police, in accordance with state law, conduct inspections of all school buses used to transport children to public and private schools. All buses are inspected annually.
While school bus inspection reports are a public record, historically there was not a simple way for parents, school officials, or the public in general to view the thousands of inspection reports prepared by state police personnel each school year.
The goal of this public access portal website is to provide parents, school officials, and the public in general, an easy to navigate website with up-to-date school bus inspection information.
The public access portal website became operational on July 1. The website contains records from more than 30,000 inspections and will automatically update within days after future school bus inspections are conducted.
