School Transportation: A Guide for Supervisors.
National Safety Council, Chicago, IL.
This working guide for the school bus supervisor shows how to increase the safety and efficiency of school transportation. Guidelines are provided to help prevent accidents involving school buses and to establish sound operating policies for school transportation fleets. The booklet points out how any school transportation system can provide its bus operators with the same kind of professional safety supervision furnished to drivers of commercial fleets. It describes the organization and administration of a school transportation safety program; and tells how to get maximum use from the NSC School Transportation Safety Service, record and analyze the driving performance of individual drivers, and use the analysis in remedial training to improve performance. Guidelines are listed for setting up bus routes for maximum safety. In addition, the responsibilities of State and local administrators for the guidance, leadership, and support of the total transportation safety program are outlined. (Author)
