Dorothy Muchmore is the Portland Public Schools’ new Director of Transportation. She started work on Monday, March 2.

Muchmore comes to Portland from her position as transportation manager with SAD 6 in Buxton, where she worked for five years. Prior to that, she worked with the Forsyth County Schools in Georgia, where she began her career as a bus driver and quickly moved to transportation supervisor.

Muchmore brings with her a vast experience in the management of school transportation. Her experience includes overseeing of large bus fleets (73 buses in Buxton); coordination and monitoring of multiple bus routes (84 routes for more than 3,000 students with the Forsyth County schools); supervision of up to four coordinators and 127 bus drivers; and budget development. She also has experience working collaboratively with school boards, school unions, administration, parents, staff and the community.

Within her management role, Muchmore has also conducted job fairs in order to recruit highly qualified personnel; implemented and coordinated employee training; and held high standards for customer satisfaction by working together with school personnel and the public.

“Dorothy’s commitment to continuous quality improvement, professional development, collaboration and customer service will make her a valuable addition to the Portland Public Schools,” said Portland Public Schools Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk.
