Elementary Bus Transportation Information
Coldwater Community Schools has purchased ZONAR for our transportation department. ZONAR includes GPS location devices and ZPass. The ZPass is a way to keep track of the students who ride on Coldwater Community Schools buses. The Transportation Department has installed the electronic verification safety report system for all the drivers to use, and it has gone very well. This will help our transportation department keep the attendance of those students each day and all information is kept in our database. Students Pre-K through 5th Grade will each receive a ZPass that attaches to their backpacks. They will swipe them when they get on and off the bus.
