Driving a school bus is not an easy task, nor is it one to be taken lightly. School bus drivers bear a degree of responsibility imposed upon no other class of professional CDL driver. School bus driving, among other things, requires: constant attention; a full measure of driving skill; diplomacy in handling students, parents, school personnel, and the public; a complete knowledge of all applicable rules and regulations; an understanding of defensive driving and basic first aid; and, last but not least, a deep feeling of personal responsibility for the safety of the students aboard your bus. Once a school bus leaves the facility, the success or failure of that trip rests mainly with you, the bus driver or bus attendant.
Since 1958, four generations of our family have been setting standards in the school bus industry. The Deitch name is highly recognized for our record of safety, service and integrity. Our company was founded by Steward Deitch in November 1958 with the purchase of 2 school buses from another contractor for the newly opened Big Spring School District. Steward also held a position on the school board. Legal Counsel believed this was a conflict of interest, the school bus company was turned over to Richard Deitch, Steward’s son and he ran the buses until Steward’s term on the school board was over in December of 1959.
