S.O.A.R.: Safe, Orderly, And Respectful

Bus Safety Education for the Cobb County School District

Statewide Education for School Bus Drivers in Georgia School Districts

Schedule by email: Meredith.Banks@cobbk12.org

This is a two-part introductory training program for school district transportation departments who are interested in implementing S.O.A.R.: Safe, Orderly, And Respectful school bus safety/bus stop procedures, and the SAFE RIDER student management graduated discipline program.

Directors, what do bus drivers ask for most? The answer is easy - Help!

Whether it’s unruly students, demanding parents or busy administrators, school bus drivers need an abundance of support. S.O.A.R. and SAFE RIDER programs work together to provide the support needed in reducing the amount of resignations occurring from feeling frustrated.

Bus drivers are the unsung heroes of a school system, but there’s a heavy and unspoken load upon their shoulders. It’s important to provide to them the most up-to-date Safe Practices, student management tools, and parent communication materials to insure they are safe and successful school bus drivers.
