School Bus Driver Instructional Program. Course Guide.
Department of Transportation, Washington, DC. National Highway Safety Bureau.
A standardized and comprehensive school bus driver instructional program has been developed under contract with the Federal Government. The course has been organized to provide in one package a program for developing the minimum skills and knowledge needed by the school bus driver, as well as those supplemental skills and knowledge which the proficient driver might require. This guide, one section of the program, has been prepared to assist course administrators and instructors in the preparation for and the conducting of the School Bus Driver Instructional Program. In order that the program might be usable by all States and school districts, it has been designed to be flexible and is, therefore, adaptable to specific local or individual requirements. At several points in the program, indications are provided about where adaptations may best be made. This course guide contains a unit-by-unit specification for required instructor resources in tables which identify the major equipment, references, handout material, and media required to localize the units. The remainder of the document is given over to a statement of the course objectives, some course planning considerations, and guidelines for conducting the program. The appendixes include a complete audiovisual directory of available films and slide programs relevant to the course and a bibliography of pertinent references. (Author/MLF)
