CCDS adjusts school hours next year to maintain transportation services

Jan 15 CCDS adjusts school hours next year to maintain transportation services

The Clark County School District (CCSD) is committed to providing regular and punctual transportation to eligible students.

Because bus driver shortages have affected all sectors across the country and to transport students to and from school more efficiently, CCSD has adjusted school start and end times for the year. 2022-2023 school year, which begins August 8, 2022. The first transition will impact the upcoming 2022-2023 school year by making slight changes to start and end times on more than half of school campuses in order to improve punctuality rates for all bus lines. In most schools, the adjustment is less than 30 minutes, which impacts 65 bus routes.

All back-to-school and end-of-school times for the 2022-2023 school year can be accessed by clicking here. Schedules are subject to change pending the completion of the extended school day request approval process.

“Getting students to school on time is critical to student success,” said CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. “The district is committed to maintaining bus service for our eligible students, and these changes will improve the reliability and speed of transportation service.”

School districts nationwide continue to experience significant shortages of bus drivers, forcing some districts to cut services to a large percentage of their eligible students.

By adjusting start and end times for students, SDCC will be able to provide the same level of service with increased on-time rates and improved efficiency through route consolidation.

CCSD Transportation provides bus service to approximately 125,000 students on over 1,500 routes. SDCC employs over 1,300 drivers and maintains the largest owned/operated school bus fleet in the country.
