Annual training for school bus drivers will be provided online beginning in April 2010.
The online training, approved by the state, will enable all school bus drivers to meet the annual requirement outlined in ARSD 24:06:08:01. The training can be done at a time that is convenient for the driver, and at a savings to the district by eliminating the expense for travel to an onsite training.
The new training will allow districts to choose from a wide variety of topics, selecting those that are relative to the district or individual driver.
Information regarding cost and specific instructions for accessing the online training will be provided in an email message to administrators and technology coordinators as soon as it is available.
