    Leander Independent School District (ISD) Awards Safety Vision, LLC School Bus Mobile Video System Project

    The project will help LISD update obsolete systems and ensure the department can retrieve video effectively and achieve a significant step toward improved safety for LISD students and drivers.” - Clint Bryer, Director - Student Transportation

    HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2024 / -- Safety Vision, LLC, a leading provider of mobile surveillance solutions, has been selected by the Leander ISD (LISD) in the Austin area to implement an advanced onboard camera surveillance system for their school buses. This project is intended to better safeguard students during their commute and boost parental confidence knowing their children are protected by state-of-the-art technology.


    Safety Vision will replace all existing bus cameras and upgrade the onboard digital recorders across the entire Transportation fleet of approximately two hundred buses. LISD’s current camera system was beginning to fail with the technology becoming obsolete, negatively impacting the department’s ability to record and retrieve video effectively and efficiently. This capability is critical for the transportation to effectively monitor and resolve reported incidents or events. The new camera systems were ordered in Fall of 2023, marking a significant step toward improved safety for LISD students and drivers. 


    New systems will reliably capture video footage both inside and outside the buses, monitor and promote positive student behavior, and ensure the timely resolution of parent inquiries or concerns. Systems will also include the Safety Vision TotalView™ 360-degree camera system to provide drivers unsurpassed visibility all around the bus to significantly minimize the risk of student injuries. 


    The project was funded as part of a broader 2023 transportation bond with an estimated cost of $1,200,000, with any remaining funds allocated to project savings under the Bond Oversight Committee. The LISD Transportation team is diligently working with Safety Vision on the installation schedule, with completion expected by July 2024.
