CINCINNATI — On July 1, First Student will begin serving Valley View Local Schools under a 10-year contract.

Under the agreement, First Student will operate, maintain and manage all of the Germantown, Ohio-based district’s student transportation services.

First Student will install additional safety features on the district's school buses, including GPS, onboard digital video cameras and Child Check-Mate electronic reminder systems.
