School Bus Safety Drives New New York Legislation AB823

By Crisis Prevention Institute | February 02, 2015 | New York | Pending | 0 comments
Legislation introduced recently in New York aims to ensure that school bus drivers and attendants are properly trained in techniques to prevent and discourage bullying, harassment, and discrimination they may encounter in the vehicles.
NY AB823 [PDF] is an Act introduced on January 7, 2015 intended to amend education law and vehicle and traffic law as they relate to training surrounding these issues, and it states that “the commissioner shall develop a uniform and comprehensive training program for school bus drivers transporting students to and from school by school bus in the discouragement, prevention, and detection of harassment, bullying and discrimination.”
CPI is committed to the Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security℠ of everyone who rides in a school bus, and in addition to our Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program, we also offer instructional DVDs that specifically address school bus safety, including School Transportation Security and Emergency Preparedness.
More useful information about school bus safety, as well as related features about general school safety, Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports, trauma-informed care, and crisis and behavior management can be found in the Blog section of the CPI website. Here are a couple examples of the helpful articles available there:
CPI will continue to monitor NY AB823’s progress and post updates as they develop.
