School Bus Driver Safety Refresher

The summer School Bus Driver Safety Refresher program was offered on Monday, August 28, 2017 at SUNY Oneonta.  The program covered two of the State mandated topics for 2017-2018. The topics were "Transporting Students with Disabilities" and "Natural Disasters - Preparing for Weather Emergencies."

The winter program will be held on Monday, January 8, 2018 at SUNY Oneonta. The event will cover the last mandated State topic as well as a fourth topic. These topics are "Child development, the Preschool Years: Understanding characteristics and teaching ridership to young riders," and "Creating a Welcome and Safe Environment: Bus Management Strategies for developing relationships with students and preventing Bullying."

Hard copies of the registration materials for the winter event were sent to districts at the beginning of November.
