The Board of Education on Monday approved the hiring of Mary Torrance as Director of Transportation for Geneva School District 304. She will begin her full-time assignment on July 1, 2014.
Ms. Torrance began work in Geneva School District in 1999 as an administrative assistant and dispatcher. In 2000, she was promoted to her current position of Transportation Supervisor, in which she develops bus routes, determines hazard area designations, monitors and evaluates bus driver performance, drives when necessary, coordinates all field trip transportation, and assists with the hiring of all new drivers.
In addition, Ms. Torrance serves as a School Bus Driver Trainer for the Kane County Regional Office of Education.
“Ms. Torrance knows our transportation system at Geneva 304 well and will do an excellent job in this leadership position,” said Superintendent Kent Mutchler.
The Director of Transportation position is being vacated by Bob McElligott, who will retire at the end of the school year after 9 years with the District.
