Reopening Our Schools

The East Greenbush CSD has developed Reopening Plans that include a hybrid model and a full remote option for families. These plans prioritize the health and safety of all students and staff and the academic and social emotional needs of our students.

Transportation

School busesThe East Greenbush CSD transports nearly 4,500 students to more than 50 schools encompassing four counties twice a day. Our department is proud of our DOT inspection rating, which is 99.2% (with 100% being the highest rating).

Our fleet of 103 school buses are maintained by experienced district mechanics and inspected by the DOT every six months.

All of our school bus drivers have undergone rigorous training before they get behind the wheel – including:

  • background checks with fingerprinting
  • passing a DMV road test and earning a class B license
  • passing a “physical performance test” that tests coordination, strength and stamina
  • passing a doctor’s physical
  • regular drug testing
  • 50+ hours of classroom and on the road training

We are proud of our safety record and service to the community. Our number one goal is to provide the safest transportation possible for our children!

If you are having difficulty locating your student’s bus route, or have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at (518) 477-9288.

Be safe and enjoy the school year!

Mark Noeth
Transportation Supervisor
