School Transportation Safety Instruction
The school district will conduct school bus safe riding practices instruction and emergency safety drills once a year for students who utilize school district transportation.

This will include, but not be limited to, students with disabilities. School district vehicle drivers are required to attend each safety drill.
Employees shall be responsible for instructing the proper techniques to be followed during an emergency, as well as safe riding practices. Classroom teachers will work together with school transportation personnel to promote school bus safety.
