District teaches bus safety through music


The transportation department staff at Westerville (Ohio) City School District created and performed in a musical to teach students in kindergarten through third grade the rules for waiting for the bus and riding the bus safely. In this video, drivers peform "The 3 Bs" to help students remember to keep their bottom on the bottom of the seat, their back on the back of the seat and their backpack on their lap.

Very good video. I am a school bus safety trainer for k - 5 in New Hampshire and I always look for new and interesting ideas. Way to keep the kids attention.

That was a great job!! Mercer Island Washington Bus Drivers are now in the process of doing another play for the district. The drivers have been getting together every week since the last part of August.
