The GGAM IBT Bussing Committee was incorporated in April 2002 as a not-for-profit organization. The Committee consists of parent volunteers, parents of students that attend the IBT Program at Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School and Allan A. Martin Senior Public School and who are in the bussing program. In 2013, the GGAM IBT Bussing program was expanded to include students in the GDM program at Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School. The parent volunteers dedicate their personal time to administer and manage the bussing program for approximately 500 students.
