First Student, Inc. is the student transportation provider for the Belvidere School District. I would like to personally thank you for the opportunity to serve your community. At First Student, the safety and security of the six million students we transport to and from school each day is our core value. We are proud to be a member of the Belvidere community and our drivers are committed to providing outstanding service as they, too, live and work here.
We are excited to partner with District #100. Our busses offer a number of safety features such as Child Check-Mate®, an electronic reminder system designed to ensure that a child is not left unattended on a bus, and GPS systems, which allow us to pinpoint each bus' exact location at all times. Our busses also feature crossing gates on the front of the busses to ensure children cross at a safe distance.
First Student employs highly trained drivers who are committed to providing your children with safe transportation. Every First Student driver must undergo extensive classroom and behind-the-wheel training before transporting any students. Our background check processes are the most comprehensive in the industry and include checks of drivers' residency, work, driving and criminal histories. Regular re-checks are conducted throughout an employee's tenure with the company.
First Student is committed to delivering a high standard of safety and service. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you, and will strive every day to provide the safest transportation possible. We look forward to working with the employees, students, and parents of District #100 for many years to come.
