The 43 people who deliver nearly 4,000 Seymour students back and forth from home to school each day undergo six hours of training before school starts each year.
Three hours of that training for school bus drivers are required by the Indiana Department of Education. It’s conducted online. The remaining three hours, conducted Tuesday, took place at the corporation’s transportation garage at Freeman Field.
A variety of people talk to the drivers about issues each year, said Tim Fosbrink, the district’s transportation director. They include the school nurse, who talks about airborne pathogens and other health issues, and a Seymour police officer, who talks about security and safety issues.
