Michigan school bus inspections are in and 90 percent of them pass with flying colors.

That up one percent from last year.

384 school districts around the state received a certificate of excellence for achieving a 100 percent pass rate. That's the most districts ever since mandatory inspections began in 1990.

Here' some examples from area school districts.

Of the 75 buses in the Lansing Public School district, 58 of them passed. Eleven of them were yellow tagged, while six of them were red-tagged.

Yellow means they can operate, but need to be repaired in sixty days. Red means they will be taken out of service until the defect is fixed.

Forty eight of the 59 buses in Jackson Public Schools passed with no problems. Eleven of them were red tagged, while just one was yellow tagged.

All the buses in the Northwest Public Schools, Eaton Rapids, Charlotte, Mason and Okemos school districts passed inspection.
