Will Rosa, Parkway’s director of transportation, has earned a Special Needs Training endorsement from the National Association for Pupil Transportation.
The training program offers a rigorous curriculum designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of transporters working with special needs students. Topics covered include child passenger safety restraint and safety “roadeos.”
Parkway joins 83 other schools districts across the country in completing the select specialized training.
Rosa, who is one of nine transportation specialists receiving the endorsement at this time, said, “Professional development is important to ensure we are current with the best transportation practices for the Parkway special needs children we transport. I am convinced the minute you stop learning is the same minute you stop improving. “
