The AISD transportation department recently purchased five new Suburbans with funds from the 2014 Bond package. The vehicles are replacing older, high-mileage vehicles.
The Suburbans are used daily for a variety of purposes. The most common uses include athletics events that are out of town and for teachers to travel to conferences. The homeless program, which helps students in transition remain enrolled in their original schools, uses the vehicles to drive students to schools in a number of cities, including Arlington, Denton, Frisco, Grand Prairie and Cedar Hill. The career and technical education department also uses the Suburbans to drive students to job sites.
