New GCPS Buses Purchased

We are thrilled to report that the GCPS transportation department has purchased two new buses to be added to the fleet. This purchase was made possible by the school board’s approval of the GCPS Capital Improvement Plan, which indicated a schedule of bus replacement in accordance with the VA Department of Education guidelines for safety and maintenance of a sound fleet.

This purchase was made through a contract established by the state of Virginia in accordance with the Virginia Public Procurement Act. We are especially thankful to Mrs. Betty Thurston for her leadership and for the mechanics and all members of the transportation department who ensure that the vehicles transporting students every day are safe and clean.
