OSBA is pleased to provide members with an opportunity for training in pupil transportation management. Our goal is to support newly appointed as well as veteran administrators. The training program focuses on three core competencies: compliance and safety; operations management; and governance and finance. The entire curriculum is delivered over a three-year period, with a minimum of five classes per school year. You may begin the program in any year.
Cycle schedule: FY 22 school year - Governance; FY 23 school year - Compliance and Safety; FY 24 school year - Operations Management
Districts may participate in several different ways:
1) register for any of the individual classes offered; or 2) register for the complete curriculum one year at a time.
