The Rocky River City School District in Ohio is using technology to help keep students safe on the school bus. The district's transportation department replaced push-pins and string with a high-tech computer system for mapping bus routes, and buses are equipped with cameras and GPS tracking technology. In addition, drivers use handheld computers to check their vehicles' mechanical operations, and the district is considering implementing a card system that would provide more oversight of children boarding and exiting buses.
