Developing Transportation Partnerships

Zachary Community School District, Zachary, La.


In 2002, Zachary Community School District (ZCSD) made the strategic decision to improve the education of their children. This desire for change necessitated a split from their traditional parish school district. As such, ZCSD became the first school district independent of a parish in eighty years. Part of this decision included contracting their transportation services to First Student.

Download the case study to see how the relationship between First Student and ZCSD continues to allow their educators to focus on fostering growth in the state’s top performing school district.

“If we cannot do it safely, then we’re not going to do it at all. We have complete togetherness; complete teamwork in everything that we do.”
