School Transportation Issues, Laws and Concerns: Implications for Future Administrators
Durick, Jody M.
Online Submission
Nearly all building administrators are confronted with a variety of transportation issues. Challenges, concerns and questions can arise from various aspects, including student misbehaviors, transportation laws and its implications at the school level, to importance and implementation of a school bus safety program. As new and upcoming future administrators begin to gather a deeper understanding of managing and dealing with transportation issues, it is important to understand the implications of various data surrounding transportation concerns, so that educated decisions can be made with regards to working effectively at the building level with school transportation. Throughout an examination of literature regarding transportation issues, concerns and problems, three major areas preside: issues regarding school bus safety and particular laws, the trends within school bus transportation, and its effects on school bus transportation safety education. Information gathered from the literature review, indicates that an increased knowledge of the aspects of student transportation, coupled with an awareness of transportation laws, can lead to creating and/or effectively implementing a school bus safety education program. Amid all of the school transportation laws, research and issues, the implications for future administrators can be best summarized by stating, that collaborative efforts amongst all community stakeholders can play a vital role in assisting with the safety of children and the implementation of an effective school transportation safety program.
