National School Bus Safety Week

Oct. 20–24, 2014 

Schools around the country will recognize 2014 School Bus Safety Week, celebrating the theme: "At My Stop, You Stop!"

Studies have proven that the most dangerous part of the school bus ride for children is when they get on and off the bus. Remember to pay close attention to school buses when you see them driving on the street and teach children how to be safe when boarding and exiting the bus.

School Transportation Professionals
From winding country roads to busy city streets, school bus drivers carry the most precious cargo: our children! School bus drivers, mechanics and other school transportation personnel are the safest and most qualified in the state. They also care about the kids and the community. Bus drivers know that parents want the peace of mind that comes from trusting the person behind the wheel of the big yellow bus.

School bus drivers volunteer for more training than any other drivers in the state, and they are all required to pass stringent health and performance tests before they receive a license to drive a school bus.

Getting kids to and from school and activities--safely and on schedule--makes bus drivers, mechanics and other transportation personnel an integral part of our schools and our communities.

Last school year (2013-14), USD 460 bus drivers covered 76,683 miles on routes and activity trips--more than 3 times around the world!  Take time to thank a bus driver!

KSDE-Awarded Banner

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) has recognized USD 460 as a district achieving the highest level of determination in compliance with special education accountability and reporting requirements.

Below is information from the KSDE web site regarding the recent initiative:
"As a result of the reauthorization of IDEA 2004, increased accountability at the state and local level and changes in the Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP) monitoring priorities, Kansas has shifted from a Focused Monitoring System to an Integrated Accountability System. The Kansas Integrated Accountability System is in alignment with IDEA 2004 and General Supervision requirements as outlined by the OSEP and Kansas Special Education Statutes. The shift to the Kansas Integrated Accountability System results in a continuous monitoring cycle involving data collection, verification, reporting, and improvement activities by both the State and LEAs. The system will ensure both state level and individual district compliance with the federal special education requirements and monitor those areas most closely associated with improved academic achievement results for children and youth with exceptionalities."
