MODULE OVERVIEW
The school bus driver sets the stage for how things will go on the school bus and throughout the students’ day. Safety starts with the driver and a driver’s attitude predicts how the students will behave; a driver’s “baggage” shouldn’t get carried on to the school bus. School bus drivers also need to pay attention to other drivers and their attitude changes and know what to do to get help.
