Navajo Head Start's fleet consists of 113 school buses and 119 vehicles, of which 70 are program-purchased and 49 are leased through the Navajo Nation Fleet Management Department on an annual renewal basis.
Mileage and monthly user rates are established by Navajo Nation Fleet Management each year and reflected in the Navajo Naion Budget Manual. The user rate covers the regular preventative maintenance of the vehicles such as oil changes, brakes, tune-ups, other maintenance, and any other repairs like windshield cracks or replacement, tire replacement and major repairs are paid for by the Interdepartmental Charge Requisitions (ICR).
Currently, 30% of the current fleet of school buses and 50% of vehicles need replacement and, 80% of school buses are 10-14 years old. The program purchased 14 new busses in 2015 and, so the percentage decreased to 15% from last year.
