New driver training video targets harassment

Posted on October 16, 2008

LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Education Compliance Group Inc. has released a new training video, Putting the Brakes on Harassment: Training for School Bus Drivers, by attorney and consultant Peggy Burns.

The 28-minute video comes with a discussion guide and trainer’s manual to support follow-up conversation with drivers and ensure application of the program to district, company or agency policies.

With colorful graphics, the video underscores the fact that harassment on the school bus can create a true safety issue, a significant barrier to learning and a potentially serious legal problem.

The video portrays Peggy teaching a live class of actual drivers. Peggy stresses that “Doing nothing is always the wrong response” when it comes to student-to-student harassment on the bus. Drivers learn practical approaches that have been approved by courts across the country to address harassment.

The Putting the Brakes on Harassment: Training for School Bus Drivers program can be purchased in either DVD or VHS format for $175, plus $15 for shipping and handling, from Education Compliance Group Inc., PO Box 221, Lafayette, CO 80026.

A combination package of one DVD and one VHS copy of the program is available for the discounted price of $240 per package, plus $15 for shipping and handling.
