"Zip, Zero, Nada, None"
NAPT is developing a campaign to help eliminate school transportation related fatalities by 2025 called “Zip. Zero. Nada. None.” NAPT Region 1 Director, Dr. Peter Lawrence will kick off our annual conference with a discussion on this campaign and how we as NYAPT members, can take part and encourage others to focus their efforts on a fatality-free 2019-20 school year and beyond.
"The Art of Leadership"
Bill Hoosty will present on the "Art of Leadership". It is increasingly necessary to be more than just a manager in school transportation operations. Leadership skills are a necessity and regularly sharpening those leadership skills is paramount to our success. Bill will give us the tools to "Become a Master" using the ever humorous, but effective, Cats and Dogs analogy. Come to the conference and learn to be a better leader and take your operation to new heights!
Special Education Transportation
Back upon popular demand, Attorney Tara Moffet, Esq. from the Girvin and Ferlazzo law firm will update conference attendees on the latest laws and regulations regarding special education transportation. Tara will cover case studies and recent issues concerning the transportation of students with special needs. This session was a big hit at Winter Workshop, so attend this summer for a refresher and follow-up.
Transportation/Special Education Department Relationship
Don't miss our own Cindy Jurweicz, Transportation Director from the Bethlehem Central School District, and Special Education Chairperson, Dena Sanders, who will present on the Transportation/Special Education Department relationship. Cindy and Dena will share real world success stories on how the two departments work together at the Bethlehem School District to safely transport students with special needs to and from school everyday!
