Private bussing works well for Sturgeon Bay schools

The Sturgeon Bay School District gave up operation of its school buses in July 2013 to meet budget challenges.  Nearly six years later the service provided by Kaukauna-based Kobussen Buses continues to run smoothly.  Sturgeon Bay Superintendent Dan Tjernagel came to the district after Kobussen took over.  He says the decision to contract for bus services has helped the district to focus on its core mission.

 

 

When Kobussen Buses came into the district, the company didn't start from scratch.  It purchased the buses owned by the Sturgeon Bay district, leased the transportation garage and hired John Quaderer, the district's mechanic, to help coordinate the new arrangement.  Tjernagel says as far as students and their families were concerned the only real change was a new name on the buses. 

 

 

The arrangement has worked so well that the Sturgeon Bay School District and Kobbusen renewed their services contract in 2017.
