What About Detecting the Students Who are Already On Board?


California’s Paul Lee School Bus Safety Law, which requires a technological remedy to


prevent a recurrence, was also the result of a tragic death. Paul Lee was a nonverbal special needs student who died in 2015 in Whittier, Cali-


fornia, after being left on a hot school bus by the driver, who hurried off to a romantic tryst with a coworker. The driver is serving a 2-year prison sentence. The Paul Lee Law requires all school buses in California to have a student detection system that ensures bus drivers check for children left on the bus after the route is finished. This was to be accomplished by the start of school this year. However, the sheer volume of buses and the lack of available technology that met


state standards made it almost impossible to bring 25,000 school buses into compliance. Antonio Perez, transportation director for National City Schools in California, paid no


ANTONIO PEREZ


attention to the hubbub. He went with the Child Check Mate system, which requires bus drivers to go to the back of the bus and neutralize an alarm before it trips. This ensures that the driver at least walked to the back of the bus. All 10 of Perez’s buses are in compliance. “I thought I’d rather go with a company that’s been around for a while. They seemed to know what they were doing, and they complied with all the state regulations,” said Perez, adding that he knew it was coming. National City has 5,500 students and is on a year-round calendar. Attendants are on every bus. Perez also uses Zonar’s Bus Pass System to track who gets on and off the bus.
