7:30 - 9:30Bus Routing: Safety and EfficiencyIn this session we will explore important safety considerations when establishing bus stops; which invariably leads to bus routing considerations. And what about route hazards? Do you have a process for identifying and documenting them? We will walk through the NTSB recreations of the Fox River Grove crash including their recommendations for identifying route hazards.  We will also look at efficiency considerations and discuss our overall responsibility for kids and how they get to school.Administrators,

Come discuss, share, learn about new innovative ways of building a great team of drivers and aids. This session will focus on innovative ways of rethinking how we attract, train and retain great employees. A large portion of our discussion will focus on presuppositions that restrict and limit our ability to do the unthinkable.Admin, Ops, Training, Drivers, AttendantsRobert Leach, Academy 20

9:45 - 11:45Changing Bell Times Changing school start times can be initiated for a number of reasons, including – but not limited to - saving money. Across the country local policy and even proposed state legislation alters bell times with a goal of getting more sleep for high school students so they arrive at school better ready to learn. Equally or even more prevalent, though, is the need to change school bell times to introduce more efficiencies in transportation. There is a necessary interaction between policy and feasibility, followed by implementation and, of course, communicationAdministrators,
