Transportation Department

“Wow! What an honor! It's my privilege and pleasure to work with a great group of people who encourage me daily to strive to do my best and keep growing. Thank you for seeing and choosing me as Employee of the Week.”


The Oxford School District is proud to recognize dispatcher and route planner Lisa Buford as our Employee of the Week for the Department of Transportation. Ms. Buford helps make our district a great place to work and learn.

Here’s what Transportation Supervisor Scott Cofer has to say about Ms. Buford:

“Lisa Buford was selected as Employee of the Week for the Transportation Department for her commitment and dedication to the Oxford School District. Lisa has grown over the years from a bus driver while attending college, to a sign language interpreter on the school level before moving into her current position as Transportation Router/Dispatcher. Lisa faces several tasks daily from building routes, assigning children to the buses and going over the routes with the drivers. This helps ensure the buses arrive at their dedicated stops and at their scheduled times. When the department is short on drivers, Lisa is always willing to help out driving a bus. Lisa also tracks and manages a lot of the data that the department uses to inform the transportation department on how well we are performing with matters such as on time arrival to school.”

Congratulations, Ms. Buford! You’re a great representative of the #ChargerNation.

Congratulations to our OSD Employee of the Week, Lisa Buford, who is the dispatcher and route planner for the district's...
