The SECURE School Bus Safety Program
It is with great pride that I, Kathy English, share with you The SECURE School Bus Safety Program. As a school bus driver for fourteen years, I found there to be a lack of instruction regarding school bus safety, resulting in some very scary habits formed by children and drivers. We teach our children to tie their shoes so they won't trip and fall. We teach them how to walk to school so they will be safe. But, as embarassing as it is to say, "We don't teach our children how to safely get on and off a bus, behave safely while on the bus, and how to evacuate in the event of an emergency very well!!!"
The safety of students is so important, I took the initiative to develop a hands on, school bus safety program that I could give to the elementary children in my area. Since developing The SECURE School Bus Safety Program, I have presented it to over 17,000 Elementary and Middle School students.
I have developed The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Kit to allow all children to benefit from the program. Responsibility is the focus of my message and I wish to share the responsibility of school bus safety with you. I know as parents, teachers, principals and drivers, you can and will assume that responsibility, if you have the tools. The SECURE School Bus Safety Program provides those tools.
The kit includes:
The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Implementation Guide: allows any school to implement this program into their schools annually.
The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Facilitators Guide: gives the tools and information for anyone to facilitate this program to children in your school.
The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Teacher's Toolbox: provides the classroom teacher with simple reinforcement tools.
The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Video: a video of an actual presentation of the program to be used by the facilitator to learn the program, as a reinforcement tool and also to show parents.
The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Driver's Guide: outlines the basic principles and guidelines for the school bus drivers to reinforce.
The SECURE School Bus Safety Program Parent's Guide: outlines the basic principles and guidelines for parents so they can be aware and reinforce them at home.
