Director of Transportation

  • Mary Jo Hetrick serves as the Director of Transportation at Bondurant-Farrar Schools where her main responsibility is to oversee the transportation of students to and from school, field trips, and activities. On a typical school day, over 1,200 students are transported through the department’s 17 regular bus routes, two mini-bus routes, and three van routes. The Director of Transportation reports to the Director of Administrative Services.  


    Mrs. Hetrick was promoted to director in July of 2018 after serving as an assistant to the department for three years. Prior to joining Bondurant-Farrar, Mary Jo served as a site supervisor for the Saydel and Colfax-Mingo transportation departments, and a bus safety trainer for Ankeny Schools. Mrs. Hetrick has served in education since 1998 and driven a school bus since 2004.


    Mary Jo and her husband, Mark, live in Ankeny. The couple has been married for over 29 years and share two grown children. Much of their spare time is spent traveling to car shows within Iowa, vacationing, and visiting state capitols and presidential libraries across the United States. Mrs. Hetrick enjoys working with the students, teachers, and administrators and feels fortunate to have a great group of drivers to work with.
