Manual for the Instruction of School Bus Drivers.
Stewart, Otto J., Comp.
In answer to requests from numerous school and safety officials throughout the State, a manual for the instruction of school bus drivers was prepared; with 2,000,000 pupils in 20,000 vehicles being transported daily during a school year, the State of New York realizes the necessity for correct safety procedures to be well defined for those transporting children to and from school safely. Units in the manual cover responsibilities of the school bus driver; the school bus driver's relationship to parents, pupils, and school officials; administrative procedures of the school transportation program; driver qualifications; driving skill; accidents, first aid, and school bus health and sanitation, care and maintenance of the school bus; traffic laws, signs, and signals; driving skills in closed areas. Also included is a review test and a bibliography of recommended films for individual units of the course. The appendix has copies of the necessary school bus driver forms (application, medical examination, psychophysical test record, and accident) as well as information pertaining to safety citations and where psychophysical tests may be secured.
