We know your job is the safe transportation of students who are ready to learn. Our purpose is to help transportation officials provide access to education services without the costly and emotionally-draining distractions of legal issues, personnel dilemmas, and operations puzzles. The Mission of Education Compliance Group, Inc., then, is to help you make defensible decisions that further your goals.

With her husband Mike, Peggy started Education Compliance Group, Inc. in 1995 with the recognition that transportation officials must act and react in so many arenas – all with legal implications: student management and discipline; employee hiring, evaluation, discipline, and termination; developing and enforcing policy in all areas of transportaion operations – just to name a few. And all that’s in addition to driving!
