What is STSWR and what is the relationship to each School Board?

Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR) is a separate legal entity established by the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) and the Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) to plan and oversee the delivery of student transportation in the Region. While the responsibility for establishing transportation policies remains with the individual school boards, STSWR is charged with applying the policies and procedures set by the boards in a consistent manner across the system. The STSWR staff members are employed directly by STSWR, and management reports to a board of directors made up of senior administration from the two school boards.
