Bus Safety

Dear Parents,

The Douglas County School District Transportation Department is excited to announce a new innovation in student bus safety.  We are committed to the safety of our students, which is why we are pleased to offer this new technology.  ZPass + gives parents the ability to better track their students activities when it comes to riding the bus.  

ZPass+ gives parents the reassurance that their student has made it to and from school safely by sending a message every time their child swipes in or out of the bus. The service is being offered to all participants of the regular ZPass program, at no additional cost.

How does it work?

  1. Rider scans card while entering and exiting the bus*

  2. We record the data, time and location of the bus

  3. ZPass+ sends real-time text or email updates to parent.

It is really that simple.

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”
