History has been made today in the new unified school district.

About 150,000 students across Shelby County are in class.

32,000 of those kids took the school bus this morning.

A big deal for many parents.

So to ease parents concerns, the Shelby County administration hopped in a school bus, too.

About two dozen of them.

Board members will make visits to eight schools throughout the day. Spending some time at various high schools, middle, and elementary schools.

They just want to make sure things are running smoothly for this historic day.

"Our goal as a school board is to make sure that nothing really had an impact on our children so when they went to school today and they meet their teachers they're in that same environment, they feel comfortable and it's hopeful there won't be any snafus," Patrice Robinson said. "We're excited because we're seeing our accomplishments and now it's time to take action and I think that's what's so exciting about this. We've been talking about it for so long now we're doing it!"

The interim superintendent Dorsey Hopson was among the board members attending the bus tour.

He wasn't there during the initial bus load outside the Board of Education.

Hopson, like many parents, was taking his son to school at Idlewild Elementary.

He was expected to join the group later in the day.
