Durham Bus Tracker Mobile App Available
  Northwest ISD is excited to be the only school district in Texas to partner with Durham School Services to offer a new communication tool.  In an effort to improve communication with families who use district-provided bus service, Durham School Services has developed a phone application that will securely allow parents and guardians to view the location of their child's bus in relation to their assigned bus stop.

This application will also enable parents and guardians to view multiple stops on an assigned route, including a scheduled arrival time for each stop.  The app is available for parents beginning Monday, March 2.  For details about the app, frequently asked questions, or instructions to download, click here.
