The children riding our school buses are always referred to as "our most precious cargo", and for good reason - they truly are the most precious, especially to their parents, but also to their school bus drivers. School bus drivers hold a special place in the educational spectrum. Without school buses, it would be difficult for many children to even get to school, let alone get an education. While in their care, a school bus driver's first priority is to protect and care for the student passengers on the bus, but also to simply get them to school so the children can learn. This year's training will encourage and help school bus drivers to better understand their roles in the educational process, and to help give them the tools to cope with and implement a safe ride for "our most precious cargo"!
