KSDE's (Kansas Department of Education) School Bus Safety Unit and Special Education Team along with TASN (Kansas’ Technical Assistance System Network) will be hosting Transportation Director Forums in Colby, Garden City/Holcomb, Wichita/Valley Center, Salina, Kansas City and Greenbush. These are no-cost forums and are specially designed for transportation directors and other supervisors who are responsible for providing training/professional learning for bus drivers. The agenda will include information and updates from the KSDE School Bus Safety Unit and will also focus on the use of the "In the Driver's Seat" professional learning kit that each Kansas district recently received from KSDE. The use of the kit will be demonstrated so that each participant will leave with a sample lesson that can be used immediately to train drivers. A question and answer time will also be provided. The forum agenda will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end no later than 2:00 p.m. to allow travel to and from the forum. Lunch will be provided. To attend any of the forums please complete the appropriate location on-line registration.
