Submit your School's Data

Horry County

Below you can view the participating schools and their current idling data. Each school year, we ask each school to submit at least three sets of data. The Baseline represents the initial counts for the school year, while the Final shows the last one. The difference between the baseline and final percentages represents your hard work promoting anti-idling at your school!

The bus drivers at Ocean Bay Middle School have been especially supportive. The Horry County School District requires bus drivers to keep their vehicles running when parked front-to-back, to prevent holdups in the event that one bus does not restart. The solution:  At Ocean Bay, bus drivers now use a diagonal side-by-side parking arrangement in a spare corner of the school parking lot, allowing them to shut down their engines and reduce air pollution. Patrol students held a special lunch to thank their bus drivers.
