LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Education Compliance Group Inc. has launched an expanded Website that is unique among pupil transportation resources.
An attorney and consultant, Peggy Burns is known to many as the industry’s voice on legal issues pertinent to everyday decision-making by pupil transportation officials. With the further enhancement of www.educationcompliancegroup.com, Burns includes a commitment to post and maintain reliable, up-to-date information about laws, regulations, judicial decisions and their impacts. The focus of the Website is national, and the implications of the legal issues discussed have consequences for school transporters in every state.
The Point of Law section this month features “Burns’ Best Bets” on bus stop design and change, factors to consider in the use of child safety restraints, and tips for avoiding employment discrimination. Burns said that more entries will come at least quarterly.
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. Each entry was individually selected because of its accessible, authoritative and useful content.
Additionally, the Education Compliance Group Website provides information about new products, services and presentation topics as they become available.
