After having to remove technology from their buses, one school system is excited to be putting it back. Last year, the Calhoun County school system added GPS systems to their buses.
Only a few months later state officials ordered those systems to be removed. After several months of working with state officials, the technology is making its way back to the buses. Superintendent Joe Dyar says he couldn’t be more excited.
The GPS tracking devices will allow Calhoun County Transportation officials to see where a bus is in real time. Calhoun County Schools Transportation Director Banyon Allison says they have big plans for the future.
Allison says it is important to have these devices to ensure the safety of each child. The technology will be back on the buses within the next 2 to 3 weeks.
