About Tolleson Union High School District
Tolleson Union High School District in Tolleson, Arizona, is home to five traditional high school campuses and nearly 12,000 high school students. The district’s leadership and staff — including Chief Financial Officer, Jeremy Calles, and Director of Grants and Federal Programs, Dr. Rosalva Lagunas — work hard to ensure that all of the district’s students have access to safe and dependable transportation.
HopSkipDrive collaborated with Tolleson to create a hub-and-spoke transportation model targeting open enrollment students who live outside district boundaries. Thanks to this unique partnership and HopSkipDrive’s technology-based transportation solutions, Tolleson has been able to:
Provide reliable transportation to out-of-district students
Offset staffing shortages
Built trust with parents with real-time visibility into ride progress
Give students experiencing homelessness and foster care students the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities
