Sessions at the upcoming National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Summit will cover such topics as school bus technology, budgets, safety, and security.
The association recently released the full schedule for the 2016 Summit, which will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, from Nov. 4 to 8.
In one of the workshops on the agenda, OEM officials will take part in a panel discussion on integrated school bus technology. In another session, assistant superintendents from two Missouri school districts will address budget planning, including restructuring and leasing options.
Other topics to be covered in more than three dozen workshops during the Summit include unconscious bias, relationships with school administrators and staff, alternative fuels, and stop-arm cameras.
As previously announced, NAPT and the Transportation Security Administration will hold a full-day student transportation security training event with classroom instruction and a variety of exercises. The keynote speaker lineup for the Summit includes National Transportation Safety Board chief Christopher Hart, consultant Mark Aesch, artist and speaker Richard Hight, and Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman.
The event also offers a trade show with more than 100 vendors.
