The School District of Haverford Township is pleased to announce that Kevin DiPoalo has been named the Director of Transportation. Kevin joined the District in February 2019 as the Transportation Dispatcher. In this role, he has assisted the Director in supervising the transportation operations to ensure the efficient and safe transportation of students. He has worked with the Transportation Security Administration, developed strategic plans, managed daily routes, and implemented efficient, safe standards for all drivers and assistants.
We owe a debt of gratitude to George Ramplin for his 41 years of dedicated service to the District. George is a proud graduate of the Haverford High School Class of 1977 as are his wife and children. His roles have included lead mechanic, bus driver, Transportation Operations Manager, and Director since 1994.
George implemented our Edulog Parent Portal, a self-service app that allows parents/guardians to track a child’s assigned transportation from their school. He is the recipient of the 2021 Making a Difference Awards by Delaware County's Right to Education Local Task Force. The award recognizes outstanding individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary efforts through their exceptional work to promote acceptance and understanding to ensure the inclusion of children of all abilities.
You could always find George driving a bus, working security at sporting events at the high school, or around Havertown. George managed the transportation of over 4,600 students to over 120 locations daily, and we are deeply grateful for all that he has done for our District.
Why do drivers pass stopped school buses? In this clever PSA from Northampton, Massachusetts, kids play the role of stop-arm runner and recite the many lame excuses that police have heard.
