Advanced Training Course for School Bus Drivers. A Manual for Instructors.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This manual provides the basis for a 10-hour advanced course of instruction to be offered for those school bus drivers who have successfully completed a basic course. The course is composed of five units. The pupil control unit attempts to develop in the school bus driver an understanding of the functions of discipline and his relationship to the philosophy and policies of his school district and suggests practical techniques for applying good discipline principles. A maintenance and inspection unit emphasizes the driver's responsibilities in skillful driving and preventive maintenance. One unit describes the key role the school bus driver can play in community public relations. Emergency and safety procedures are considered in another unit. The final unit describes the testing and evaluation of driving skills and points out the need for constant altertness and periodic reevaluation of driving skills. (Author/DN)
