Example of school district promoting school bus safety week - At District 113A, School Bus Safety is always our "Number One" priority and we will spend a week focusing on teaching bus safety to all district 113A students. We will be presenting the Illinois School Bus Safety Program that is mandated to be taught on an annual basis to all students in the state of Illinois. "The ABC's of School Bus Safety" is a set of lessons and activities with the objective of cultivating conscientious, safety-minded school bus passengers. It is divided into several sections and we will be covering each of these throughout the week.
Is a new kind of School Bus Safety Week needed? - Every year in the October we see a great deal of effort and press dedicated to School Bus Safety Week. Top of the list are announcements in the press that police will be patrolling the streets looking for motorists violating the bus stop law, something most of us thought was happening every day of every week. Some schools devote a few hours per day for an entire week or two to safety at school, on the school bus and other areas where safety is important. And some school districts do little or nothing. This article explores how some schools and communities are teaching safety to kids and parents.

What is Safety Town? - Begun in Ohio in 1937, Safety Town is a "pint-sized" town where comprehensive safety messages are taught by safety professionals to kindergarten age chldren.

if you show them, they may understand; but if you involve them, they will learn." ~ Dorothy Chlad - Founder - National Safety Town Center, Cleveland, Ohio
Passing stopped school bus dangerous, illegal - Although school has been in session for several weeks, some area motorists still need a reminder about school bus safety, according to officers at the New Philadelphia post of the Ohio Highway Patrol.
