and its state director members weather bud- get cuts and even thrive in spite of them. “Without the Supplier Council, things would not be the same,” said Kinney, who was NASDPTS president in 1987 and 1988, while overseeing the Office of School Transportation at the California Depart- ment of Education. Current NASDPTS President Diana


Hollander agreed. “NASDPTS has come a long way in the last 50 years. Our financial viability is made possible by our Supplier Council members who have continued to support NASDPTS year after year,” explained the Nevada Department of Education representative. “Tis made it possible for us to provide scholarships to state directors who might not be able to attend our conference without financial assistance. We are also able to provide membership at no cost to states, in order to assure that all states receive critical information and updates.”


INDUSTRY COLLABORATION Te information shared this month includes special invitations extended by NAPT to NASPDTS conference attendees on Oct. 27. One of the opportunities will provide an overview of an American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement released earlier this year on “Te School Bus Transportation of Children with Special Health Care Needs.” Dr. Joseph O’Neil of Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, and one of the report’s co-authors, will lead an interactive panel discussion. Te other is a five-hour NAPT special


event presented at the Kansas City Fire Academy to provide attendees with real-life information on the effect of school bus fires on student evacuation times. NAPT is also inviting NASDPTS members to attend an Oct. 28 session presented by the National Transportation Safety Board on its findings and recommendations resulting from the


investigations into the November 2016 fatal school bus crashes in Baltimore and Chattanooga, Tennessee. For its 50th anniversary, NASDPTS updated its logo to reflect the milestone, and is inviting all former presidents, exec- utive directors and contracted staff to the conference. Te opening session, “50 Years of Leadership: Te NASDPTS Legacy,” is scheduled for the morning of Oct. 28. Other scheduled conference


presentations include: Updates from federal agency representatives on regulatory activities; a discussion on state strengths and weaknesses regarding school bus driver oversight; school bus OEM updates on new technology; information on the entry- level commercial driver training rule that goes into effect in February 2020; and how school bus drivers can help identify sex trafficking. 
