Supervisors Guidebook: Driver and Traffic Safety Education.
Aaron, James E.; And Others
Intended for those responsible to organize, oversee, and evaluate a school's comprehensive traffic safety education program, this Illinois State guide contains nine major sections and appendixes. An introduction presents philosophy and status of the Illinois program, general goals and objectives, notes on relevant professional associations, and legal requirements including Federal standards, and Illinois laws with quotations from appropriate acts and codes. Section 2 is 27 definitions of driver education terms, e.g., driving range, concurrent schedule pattern, and multiple-car instruction. A section on personnel requirements and responsibilities covers administrators, supervisors, instructor, and students. Items dealt with in the administration and procedures section include budget, accident report system, insurance, options for availability of the course, program organization (design, scheduling, etc.), minimum facilities and equipment, and maintenance. The fifth section on the Illinois reimbursement program covers claims, tuition students, cooperative school programs records, participating agreements, and driver education cost accounting. A special programs section includes such topics as adult driver education, bicycle safety, commercial school programs, handicapped programs, pedestrian safety, etc. Principles and techniques of evaluation (program, facilities, staff, student, and instructional activities) make up the seventh section, and the eighth, on public relations, has such headings as Role of the Instructor, Community Support, and Legislative Support. The final section, which lists resources and materials (State guides, audio visual, periodicals, texts, etc.), is followed by an appendix containing sample forms and schedules, simulation layouts, and other program helps.
