First Canadian pupil transporter completes NAPT special-needs training


GUELPH, Ontario — Shelley Fletcher-Halls, an employee of STC Elliott Coach Lines, has become the first person in Canada to complete the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Special Needs Transportation (SNT) Training Program.

Fletcher-Halls is the ninth person to achieve this recognition overall.

The SNT training program is intended to provide 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 SNT training program consists of six special-needs courses 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 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.
