Frequently Asked Questions

The KSDE School Bus Safety Unit gets questions on a failry regular basis.  While we are able to get timely responses to most who ask, there are some recurring questions that will be addressed in this section. Many of the answers are from the Kansas Administrative Regulations (K.A.R.s) or Kansas Statutes Annotated (K.S.A.s), but there are some that will be found in the Kansas Commercial Drivers' License Handbook, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Regulations, and other sources.  We will do our best to provide you with references which can be found on the School Bus Safety Unit web site.  We hope that this will provide a quick, ready reference from some of your common questions.
