Special Needs Webinar on Teaching Independence


A main goal of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act is to teach independence and life skills to special needs students. But student transporters often miss the boat by not appro- priately or adequately training this student population on how to best use the school bus to learn life skills or to live bus safety rules.


Join Pete Meslin for a free, educational webinar on these topics on Feb. 25. Register today at stnonline.com/conferences/webinars.


Up Next: Do clogged diesel particulate filters have you down? A free April 21 webinar sponsored by Webasto will discuss the vital impor- tance of pre-heating engines to extend DPF cleaning intervals and to avoid expensive replacement costs.


Tree words: Content. Community. Commerce.
