Members of the Mooresville Schools Transportation Department pride themselves in the safe and efficient transportation for about 3,600 students to and from school each day. Our 50 buses travel approximately 372,000 miles per year, including daily transportation as well as hundreds of extracurricular trips transporting students, athletes, teachers and coaches.
Mooresville's entire bus fleet has received a 100% pass rating from the Indiana State Police bus inspection every year for the past 18 years. In addition, our tranportation department holds a Caring for Future Pioneers bus orientation program before the start of school each year to help teach incoming kindergarten students and other new bus riders about safety on and around buses.

Mooresville Schools includes the areas of Brown, Madison, and Harrison Townships as well as the Town of Mooresville in northeastern Morgan County.

Kindergarten Bus Orientation
At the beginning of each school year, we host a bus orientation for our kindergarten students or other first-time bus riders who would like to attend. The bus drivers give an orientation about bus safety and then the student may take his/her first bus ride with a parent. Please note that no preschool siblings are allowed to ride the bus. Learn more about our orientation here.
Mooresville School Buses Pass Inspections for the 18th Year in a Row
The school bus is the safest vehicle on the road—your child is much safer taking a bus to and from school than traveling by car. Less than one percent of all traffic fatalities nationwide involve school-age children each year on school transportation vehicles. Mooresville Schools believe school buses should be as safe as possible. That’s why our safety standards for school buses are set extremely high. In addition to our buses being inspected by our drivers every morning before routes, all buses are inspected annually by the Indiana State Police, in accordance with Indiana State law. Buses more than 12 model years old are inspected twice a year.
Another factor for Mooresville buses being so safe is having two top notch mechanics who run a pro-active maintenance program for the buses. Buses are thoroughly inspected after every oil change. Any time a bus is brought into the shop it is inspected for other possible repairs. By doing this very few buses are down for repairs.
Joe Craig, head mechanic, has been with Mooresville Schools for the past 12 years. Prior to coming to Mooresville Transportation he worked for 10 years at Speedway International. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the district regarding bus transportation.
Dave McDaniel started with Mooresville Schools as a sub bus driver and was later added as a mechanic. Dave has 11 years with Mooresville after 17 years of service with Allison’s and 13 years with Delco. Dave is also very knowledgeable with our buses.
Obviously Joe and Dave are a big reason for Mooresville Schools having such an exceptional run of successful State Police bus inspections over the past 18 years.
The Indiana State Police has now added the inspections of all school buses used to transport children to public and private schools in Indiana, online. These inspections can be viewed using the link provided below:
