This monograph presents a five-module staff training program used to improve the related service of transportation of children with disabilities in Union County, North Carolina. Each module takes from 4 to more than 8 hours of training and bus drivers and transportation safety assistants with current certificates in all five modules receive a special rating and salary bonus. The modules cover: (1) introduction to exceptional children for bus drivers; (2) special equipment/special reports; (3) transporting physically handicapped students; (4) first aid/cardiopulmonary resuscitation; and (5) current issues/public awareness. The following information is included for each module: a list of module content and competencies; required time; person certifying competence; renewal date for certificate; and course materials (usually both print and videotape recordings). Addresses of course material sources are attached as are the standard county Student Transportation Card, the agenda of a special bus drivers' meeting, and various handouts. (DB)
