Bossier Superintendent of Schools Scott Smith tells that for his district's first day of school, he - as part of his tradition as superintendent - rode a morning school bus route with Bossier students. He explains how the number of the district's air conditioned and non-air conditioned buses are split about 50-50, but that the cooled buses are used on the longer, more rural routes where kids are spending a greater amount of time.

The superintendent also talks about both new and expanding schools, citing the new facility in Haughton and also mentioned plans for building expansion at other area schools.

Scott also praises the Bossier schools' safety and security program, calling it "the very best...in the state, possibly the nation."
