SCHOOL BUS DRIVER TRAINING
There was a 40% documented decrease in school bus incidents within a northeastern Wisconsin school district after Children's Promise bus driver training. Within a different northeastern Wisconsin school district, school bus incidents decreased over 50% after Children’s Promise school bus driver training.
Children’s Promise currently includes Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) principles in its School Bus Driver Training. “Multi-tiered systems of support are used within 58% of Wisconsin’s school districts.” (Wisconsin RtI Center).
“The exercises and small group discussions were insightful and very educational. I had no idea there was data or scientific study compiled on preteen/adolescent behavior relating to schooling or the bus rides to and from.” (Bus driver trained by Children’s Promise).
