PREPPING SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS FOR BACK TO SCHOOL

Written By: LaJuan Bobo - August 25th, 2017

With school starting all over the nation, pupil transportation professionals have been busy getting not only school buses ready for transporting children to school, but the drivers themselves.  The following are just a few of the ways school districts are prepping the drivers for the new school year:

Finalizing bus routes

Receiving brand new buses as approved for purchase

Conducting required school bus drivers courses on new policies and safety practices

Scheduling physicals for drivers

Completing CPR, AFD (defibrillator), and EpiPen training

Scheduling school bus safety drills

Revising and updating driver manuals and handbooks

Recruiting new drivers

Training newly hired drivers

There are many other ways school districts prep their drivers for the beginning of the school year.  There is no such thing as too much training and prep to ensure that our children get to and from school and activities safely.
