Here Comes The Bus App

Here Comes The Bus App

St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) offers an innovative mobile app — Here Comes the Bus.  This FREE app is a user friendly tool that allows parents and authorized caregivers to view the real-time location of their child’s school bus on a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Here Comes the Bus app is free and enables parents and authorized caregivers to:

  • See the location of their child’s bus both before and after school pick-up
  • Confirm that their child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both
  • Receive a push notification or email message when the bus is a certain distance from the bus stop

Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions, makers of the GPS-tracking technology used by St. Lucie Public Schools to increase safety and cost savings as it relates to our school bus fleet.

Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

St. Lucie Public Schools Makes Great Strides in Academic Performance

St. Lucie Public Schools Makes Great Strides in Academic Performance

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL –  St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) has continued the positive trends with today’s Department of Education release of school grades.

SLPS strengthened its B rating, gaining 38 points to 664 and earning a top third district ranking in the state, now ranked 22nd among districts moving up from 32nd in 2017.  The district is only 1.5%  from an A.  When compared to other districts with more than 20,000 students,  St. Lucie Public Schools ranked 2nd in improvement between 2017 and 2018.

Superintendent E. Wayne Gent attributes this continued upward trend to our students and staff.  “In an extremely challenging year, our teachers and administrators were able to keep the focus on teaching and learning in order to achieve these historic accomplishments.”

The good news is evident on multiple fronts with the following highlights:

  • Increasing the number of A schools from five to eight
  • Two schools increased two letter grades. Morningside Elementary, C to an A and Weatherbee Elementary, D to a B, less than two points from an A.
  • Nine schools increased at least one letter grade.
SLPS expanded its number of A schools  which now include St. Lucie West K-8, Morningside Elementary, and Mosaic Digital Academy Lower School.  These schools join current A rated schools; Lincoln Park Academy, Fairlawn Elementary, Mosaic Digital Academy Upper School, West Gate K-8 and Palm Pointe Educational Research School at Tradition.

The schools moving up a letter grade include Fort Pierce Central (B) , Savanna Ridge Elementary(B), White City Elementary (B),  Allapattah Flats K-8 (B) and Samuel S. Gaines Academy (C).

The District will be appealing the scores for St. Lucie Elementary and Manatee K-8, both within one point of increasing a letter grade.
