• Educational Assistants should always check with the teacher if their student has a Personal Transportation Plan (PTP)

  • If there is no PTP, it is the bus driver’s responsibility to hook or strap the student in

  • E.A.s may want to work together with the bus driver (example: if student is having a difficult day; if bus driver has several students to strap in or hook in)

  • When all is said and done, it is the bus driver’s responsibility to physically check that the student is secure before moving the bus….. THE E.A. MUST ASK THE BUS DRIVER TO CHECK ANY STUDENTS THAT THE E.A. HAS SECURED ON THE BUS

  • If the bus driver chooses NOT TO CHECK the students, write down the bus #, the time, and the school name, and send the information to the Association President; Tracy Quinn @ retea246@gmail.com
