Responsive to this request, please find attached a spreadsheet with the requested information from HCPSS Transportation. Please note, no parts are stocked specifically for school busses, but are universal for potential use in various HCPSS vehicles. Additionally, HCPSS contracts with outside vendors for most student transportation services, therefore existing purchasing records reflect those parts purchased for in-house school busses.

*Some request language is summarized to include the requester's specific document requests and legally protected information (such as personally identifiable information of a student) or personal, defamatory and malicious content removed at the discretion of the school system.

**Responses containing legally protected information available only to the person of interest are omitted from the above report.

***Howard County Public Schools reserves the right to remove erroneous or outdated documents from this site.
