Ready to roll

Posted: Monday, Aug 25th, 2014

Brant Ravenscroft is the new transportation director for the Brookings School District. The past month-and-a-half have been full of new experiences as Ravenscroft learns the ins and outs of his job, but he says the district’s 22 buses will be ready to pick up and drop off students for the first day of school on Tuesday.

• New transportation director prepares for school year

BROOKINGS – It’s been a busy month and half since Brant Ravenscroft joined the Brookings School District as its new transportation director.

He’s been busily installing new technologies into the buses – such as GPS and getting ready for Wi-Fi – and preparing schedules and routes for the first time.

It’s been quite a learning curve, but having served in the Air Force, Ravenscroft said the stress of learning all the ins and outs of the new job hasn’t gotten to him.

One of his greatest resources as he settles into the role of transportation director has been the drivers.

“That’s really been the saving grace of coming here, is just the drivers that have stayed here and are coming back this year,” he said.
