The Student Transportation Aligned for Return To School (STARTS) Task Force is holding a webinar on Friday to share information to help pupil transporters assess health and safety guidelines related to COVID-19 issued by federal, state, and local health officials.

Comprised of three major pupil transportation organizations — the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT), the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services (NASDPTS), and the National School Transportation Association (NSTA), the task force launched in May with the goal of offering practical information to help student transportation providers during the COVID-19 pandemic as they prepare for when schools reopen.

The webinar will detail how information compiled by the task force is supplemented by resources created to enable school transportation professionals to accelerate their individual planning efforts in support of their local school reopening plans, according to an announcement that NASDPTS sent to members last week.The webinar will take place at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on July 17.

Register for the webinar.
