WORKSHOP DETAILS


7 – 9 P.M. Welcome Party Edge Night Club


Sponsored by MONDAY, JULY 29


8 – 9:30 A.M. Keynote How Much Integrity Do Your School Bus Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness Approaches Have? Presenter: Michael Dorn Description: This dynamic and thought-provoking ses- sion will include practical, powerful, no-cost and low-cost approaches that can be used to help school transportation officials more accurately evaluate their prevention and preparedness approaches. This presentation will address catastrophic, highly publicized, but rare events, and those that result in more than 98 percent of K-12 fatalities that do not involve active assailant events. The session is based on research for his upcoming 600-page university textbook, Understanding and Protecting People from Active Assail- ant, Hate Crimes and Terrorist Attacks. That research also includes his previous 27 books, his experience providing post-incident assistance for 15 K-12 planned school shoot- ings, plus several hundred of the more typical campus crisis incidents over his 36-year career. Dorn will review the common opportunities for improvement that have been observed by Safe Havens analysts during more than 6,800 school safety, security, climate, culture and emergency pre- paredness assessments.


10 – 11:15 A.M. Unlocking the Value of On-Bus Technologies Panel  Maintenance & Technology Facilitator: GP Singh Panelists: Tim Purvis, Michael Shields & Tim Shannon Description: Does your district use GPS devices on your buses? Are you wondering about how to show benefits for the many new devices that are being added on buses every day? Are you overwhelmed with all of the data and use of different systems? If so, this is the session you need to at- tend. It will showcase how you can improve the safety, reli- ability and efficiency of your operation, while also reducing your costs, by effectively using these technologies.


The Impacts of Charter Schools and School Choice on Student Transportation  Management & Operations Moderator: Betheny Gross Panelists: Launi Harden, Nicole Portee & Ryan Solchenberger Description: Charter schools, school choice and magnet schools affect school bus operations in large cities and small rural school districts, alike. School choice without transportation options is not a choice. A leading researcher


from the Center on Reinventing Public Education facilitates a panel discussion with student transporters to review the challenges of providing school bus transportation.


Student Dragging Incidents  Safety & Security Presenter: Betty Hughes Description: Learn strategies to prevent school bus drivers from closing the loading doors on students as they exit, then dragging them as the vehicle pulls away. This session is based on a paper the Pupil Transportation Safety Institute published in February 2015, in response to children being killed or injured.


11:30 A.M. – 12:30 P.M. Challenges with Tire Maintenance  Maintenance & Technology Presenter: Joel Mooneyham Description: This presentation will cover the need for a quality and efficient tire maintenance program and the challenges that are associated with a tire maintenance pro- gram. Topics will cover data mining, technician training and management, different aspects of tire management, tire demonstration projects, retreads and purchasing aspects.


Linking Getting to School with Going to School  Management & Operations Presenter: Christopher Salem Ozuna Description: Research performed by the University of Cali- fornia at Santa Barbara’s Gervitz Graduate School of Educa- tion indicates that a lack of school busing for kindergarten students can lead to chronic absenteeism, a fifth indicator of student success under ESSA, later in the academic career. The issue is especially perilous for students who live in rural communities. Research is expanding to draw correlations between school bus rides and school attendance patterns for students with disabilities.


Busing on the Lookout  Safety & Security Presenter: Louis Greek Description: There are an estimated 40 million victims of human trafficking globally, including thousands of school- age children in the U.S. Learn more about this serious crime and how to partner with Busing on the Lookout (BOTL). All pupil transportation managers and school bus drivers can be equipped with the information that is necessary to help fight human trafficking as part of their everyday jobs.


12:30 P.M. – 2 P.M. Lunch on Your Own


2 – 3:15 P.M. Electrifying the School Bus  Maintenance & Technology Facilitator: Tim Shannon Panelists: Blue Bird, IC Bus, Lion Electric Co. & Thomas Built Buses
