Bus inspections show improvement for Jefferson City School District from last year



The Missouri State Highway Patrol has completed its annual bus inspections for school districts in the state and the Jefferson City School District saw an improvement from last year.

School buses can be rated as “approved,” “defective” or “out of service.” A Tuesday press release from MSHP states buses with defective ratings require to be fixed within 10 days. Buses determined to be out-of-service require a correction of the component that is defective and have the bus be reinspected by MSHP personnel before it can be used again, the release says.

This year, 55 buses were inspected for the Jefferson City School District and 69.1% were approved, 21.8% were defective and 9.1% were out of service. That’s an improvement from last year, where about 57% of buses were either defective or out of service during the initial inspection.

Columbia Public Schools had 98.2% of its 167 buses approved, while Fulton Public Schools had 76.7% of its 30 buses approved, Southern Boone had 90.9% of its 22 buses approved, Boonville had 95.2% of its 21 buses approved, the California School District had all of its 17 buses approved and Moberly had 76% of its 25 buses approved.
