Hoosier parents now have an easy way to check the inspection records for the school buses their children take to and from school.
The Indiana State Police, in accordance with state law, conduct inspections of all school buses used to transport children to public and private schools. All buses are inspected annually. Buses more than 12 model years old are inspected twice each year.
While school bus inspection reports are a public record, historically there was not a simple way for parents, school officials, or the public in general to view the thousands of inspection reports prepared by state police personnel each school year.
To make school bus records more accessible, the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, in collaboration with the Indiana Office of Technology (IOT), and Indiana Interactive, a subsidiary of e-government provider NIC USA, developed a public access portal website where school bus inspection records can be viewed from the comfort of a parents' home computer.
The goal of this public access portal website is to provide parents, school officials, and the public in general, an easy to navigate website with up-to-date school bus inspection information.
You can reach this site at https://secure.in.gov/ISP/BusInspections/Public/Index.
Once on the site, select the county where the school is located and follow the on screen directions to view selected school bus inspection records.
