Our drivers have been trained to be familiar with disabilities as they relate to transportation on their bus. They are CPR certified and trained in basic first aide. Almost every bus will include a disabled student who will fall under the special education laws and be mainstreamed along with non-handicapped students. Therefore it is imperative for every driver to be trained in the requirements of special education transportation. This training includes the following:

Familiarity with basic requirements of IDEA and Section 504
Information about disabling conditions
Disciplinary and suspension procedures
Knowledge of assertive devices and their management
Behavior management techniques
Familiarity with basic medical procedures

If special instructions are needed for students; it must be mentioned on the route sheet and/or emergency information sheet located on the bus and easily accessible to the driver. This information is handled in a confidential manner as described in the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974.

If your child has a physical condition that the driver needs to be aware of please contact Special Services or the Transportation Department.
