Adil Baguirov
Transportation neglect was obvious across Dayton Public Schools, as Adil Baguirov observed once a member of the Dayton Board of Education in 2013. With many goals on his agenda, and campaign promises to keep, Baguirov worked toward them one by one, but he swiftly added transportation issues to his to-do list. The oldest bus in the district was 27 years old and the average ages of these vehicles were 15 years. Baguirov knew Dayton could do better. He worked tirelessly to help the school system finance the purchase of 115 new, comfortable, safe, top-of-the-line school buses. This purchase also included, with Baguirov’s assistance, ten-year warranties at an interest rate of 2.06%. This achievement will save Dayton schools financially overall in parts, fuel and efficiency.
