Type A: Activity Bus Driver Certification
Attention Staff Members:

If you want to transport students in our district-owned Type A - Activity Bus, you must receive training and certification annually.
Note: If you are certified to drive the activity bus, you are certified for all district-owned vehicles (vans, car and bus).

Initially, you need to take the Type A classroom training course by a rep in our Transportation Department. 
You will then schedule a behind-the-wheel evaluation 

Drivers of the activity bus must also have a DOT physical on file. The physical is good for 2 years.

The certification, required annually, consists of:
Type III pre-trip evaluation
Type III behind-the-wheel evaluation
Type III driver evaluator certification
And complete a student conduct/students with special needs survey. (appendix E)

Below you will find the training presentation provided by the Minnesota State Patrol/Dept. of Public Safety/Office of Pupil Transportation. First, review the presentation. Once you have reviewed the presentation, print the forms packet and complete the Notification/Acknowledgement Form and Appendix E - Student Conduct Survey (true/false ?s).  Return the packet to Carol Skyhawk and schedule a behind-the-wheel evaluation.
