School Bus Safety Week, which occurs the third week in October, reminds parents and students the importance of school bus safety. This year’s theme is, “At my Stop, you Stop!”
In recognition, Gov. Jay Inslee declared Oct. 20-24 as School Bus Safety Week, noting in a proclamation that “ensuring motorists adhere to the rules of the road around school buses during the loading and unloading of students is critical to maintaining safe conditions.”
Bus passing violations count released
The need for continuing education around school bus safety is highlighted by the release of data gathered this past spring.
A one day collection conducted May 1 yielded 1,678 instances in which drivers passed buses that had their stop sign out. The total is an increase of 155 reported violations (10.2 percent) from 2013. The number of districts reporting increased from 110 in 2013 to 153 in 2014.
As a group we learned valuable lessons on event planning and management. We recognize that the information and opinions expressed will be valuable to us in the future as we begin to directly influence public policy by voting. And the many other ways that Americans can influence their government and the people who represent them within it. Overall the Forum was a very enjoyable and educational experience that we are all honored to have been a part of. We hope that this event will lead to future student involvement and interest in the political processes and policies that affect us as students and as citizens.
