With the enhancement of www.educationcompliancegroup.com, attorney and consultant Peggy Burns includes a commitment to post and maintain reliable, up-to-date information about laws, regulations, judicial decisions and their impacts. The implications of the legal issues discussed have consequences for school transporters in every state.

The Point of Law section recently featured “Burns’ Best Bets” on bus stop design and change, child safety restraints, and avoiding employment discrimination.

The Resources page offers free downloads on special-needs transportation and strategic thinking about school transportation dilemmas, information about transition services, and links to valuable Websites about the law.
