Transporting and caring for our special needs students is a high value mark here at KWRL. From your home to school and back, you can rest assured that your kiddos will be well taken care of.


Transporting special needs students takes a different set of skills than transporting general education students. Our drivers are trained to carefully pick up, secure and transport your child with patience and care. We understand the unique needs of each student and strive to extend every effort in caring for them.


From wheel chair rails to special loading equipment our buses are made for this. Each bus is inspected regularly and all equipment is maintained with the utmost care, ensuring the safety of our passengers.


Special Ed drivers are trained in all of the equipment and use of our specialty buses. They have also had additional training in the needs of our students who might need extra care and understanding.


Our drivers will spend time getting to know your children and you as the parent. They will offer suggestions and listen to yours, when it comes to any concerns and procedures of which you might be in need.



Sheila Schafer is tasked to lead the fairly impressive 30 special needs KWRL bus fleet. She has over 23 years of experience and has a passion for assisting parents/guardians to ensure that thier student(s) needs are met. Sheila understands and recognizes that each student has their own circumstances and gives her very best to meet those needs. Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions regarding special need transportation.
