The bus fleet that serves the Raymore-Peculiar School District had a pass rate of 96.3 percent on initial state inspection this year, above the state average of 90.24 percent.
The three vehicles that did not pass had minor defects that were repaired the same day, so all district buses were approved for service.
Districts with approval rates of at least 90 percent qualify for the Total Fleet Excellence Award, which is presented at the Missouri Association of Pupil Transportation conference.
Raymore-Peculiar School District contracts with Apple Bus Company for student transportation. The company supplies and maintains the vehicles.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s yearly inspections include the examination and testing of items ranging from brakes, exhaust and horn, to step treads, mirrors and signage.
