Whats Happening

“Behind the Wheel”

March 31, 2019

I hope everyone has had an amazing school year and looking forward to the summer. It's hard to believe that we are less than two months away from wrapping up another year of school.

This has been my second year as the Director of Transportation in Simpson County and my first year serving as the KAPT vice president. I have been so impressed by the people that make up the organization of Pupil Transportation throughout our state. The demonstration of passion for student’s safety and support for each other has been an amazing thing to see. In my 20 years of involvement in the profession of education I must say that I have never been more impressed and it's an honor to be a small part of all the greatness that is taking place.

I feel that our KAPT organization is gaining momentum for growth and I would like to welcome every person that fulfills a role in transportation to be involved. This organization has so much to offer new directors like myself, as well as experienced employees. Together we can provide an avenue of collaboration unlike anything that exists within educational boundaries. We are all here to offer something that can create strength and support during challenging times. As many of you know we are experiencing challenging times with "Stop Arm" safety. What are other districts doing? What can I do?

The questions are difficult, but the answers and advice can save lives.

That's what we are about at KAPT...Supporting Each Other!!

Join us on this Journey...I hope to see you at the Summer Conference. June 17, 18, 19.

Have a safe and joyous end to your school year.

The Kentucky Association for Pupil Transportation (KAPT) was established in 1978. KAPT membership represents all 120 counties in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The Kentucky Association of Pupil Transportation is an organization that assists the 173 school districts across Kentucky in all areas of transportation. It is our goal to be first and foremost in leading, supporting and developing safe and efficient pupil transportation for our children. The KAPT has a mentoring program for new transportation directors and transportation officials that help them understand all areas of transportation including: transporting students, KDE reports, seek funding reports, our new transportation self-audit and staffing just to name a few. The Kentucky Association of Pupil Transportation holds annual conferences which offers training for all school district employees associated with the transportation department including Superintendent’s, Finance Officers, Directors, Managers, Trainers and Technician’s. We also have vendors on hand to help promote new products and KDE official’s help provide training in the 6 hour annual update for driver trainers, 4 hour update for technicians along with assistance in the yearend report filing.
