Every day, nearly 25 million students travel to school in an instantly recognizable yellow bus. Since these vehicles drove onto the scene decades ago, almost nothing has changed about them or the school systems that use them to transport students.
While the school bus is the safest vehicle on the road, these days many school districts are struggling to provide efficient and adequate service because of rising costs, stagnant funding, and increasingly complex regulations.
In a recent report, Bellwether Education Partners analyzed school transportation on a national scale to determine how schools can improve their transportation systems while maintaining their impeccable safety record. This webinar, hosted by report co-author Jennifer O’Neal Schiess, will focus on the planning, efficiency, and regulation of school transportation.
