Meet our Transportation Director

Barbara Leonard Indian Hill Transportation Department


My #IHPromise – to make every effort for our students to have a safe and positive experience on the school bus.


Delivering a safe and positive experience for your child – that is what my transportation team of drivers and mechanics who maintain 35 buses in our fleet, travel 26 routes, and drive 1,269 miles a day strive for each day. 

To be a Brave gives me the privilege to be surrounded by professional people who want to help our students be the best they can be.

My team members are the first people in the Indian Hill School District family to greet your child, and the last ones to say good-bye – and we do it with a smile. The best moment of my day is when I witness this interaction my driver has with your student … and your student smiles back. At that moment, I know we got it right.
