ALBANY, N.Y. — An 18th person has joined the growing group of industry professionals who have completed the National Association for Pupil Transportation’s (NAPT) Special Needs Transportation (SNT) Training Program.

Debbie Jones, director of transportation at Columbia-Brazoria Independent School District in West Columbia, Texas, took the SNT courses at events in Texas, and at the 2011 Transporting Students with Disabilities and Preschoolers National Conference and Exhibition in Kansas City, Mo.

The NAPT SNT Training Program provides numerous opportunities for transportation personnel serving students with disabilities to access educational opportunities at both local and national conferences and to gain national recognition for their efforts.

The program has a core curriculum that consists of six special-needs courses in a variety of settings, including a school bus roadeo and a trade show of school transportation products and services.

The curriculum is supplemented by two courses of elective instruction from the NAPT Professional Development Series Program.

The syllabus for the core curriculum has been specifically designed to increase an individual’s specific knowledge about transporting students with disabilities, officials said.
