Division News


Northland School Division (NSD) provides School Bus Transportation to all of our students
regardless of distance at no cost to the families that we service. To accomplish this, bus routes have been designed throughout the division to provide optimum service. The division operates 28 routes and 15 are contract-operated. Our buses travel approximately 900,000 kilometers per year.
