Jeff Schmidt, the bus coordinator for Dell Rapids High School, was recognized for a job well done by the Dell Rapids School Board during their regular meeting held on Monday, November 12th.
The school recently had an unannounced inspection of buses by the South Dakota Department of Transportation and South Dakota Highway Patrol. This inspection was a random inspection on top of the annual inspections that are done. The bus fleet passed the inspection with a minimal five point clearance light deduction. Schmidt noted that it takes 25 points to fail a bus. Schmidt also mentioned that the DOT and Highway Patrol were happy with how the inspection went.
“I think it’s really good for our community and our parents to know how much work is going into keeping those buses up, and to make sure that you know that we appreciate you Jeff,” said Superintendent Dr. Summer Schultz.
