ALBANY, N.Y. — National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) President Dr. Linda Bluth, who works for the Maryland State Department of Education, has successfully completed the NAPT Special Needs Transportation (SNT) Training Program.
Bluth is the fourth person in the U.S. to achieve this recognition, association officials said.
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 24 hours of education in a variety of different settings, including a school bus roadeo and a trade show of school transportation products and services.
The core curriculum is supplemented by eight hours 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, according to NAPT.
