1 TRAINER NOTES FOR LESSON PLAN School Bus Instructor s Inservice TITLE OF LESSON: TRAINING SCHOOL BUS MONITORS Length of Lesson: 30 minutes TRAINER NOTES: Hand out lesson plan at the beginning. Explain the following and reinforce throughout the lesson: The person, who is on the bus, helping the school bus driver with the students, comes under many different names: Monitor, Para Educator, Para Professionals and others.

This lesson will discuss Monitor Roles and Responsibilities, Emergency Preparations, Student Load and Unload, Children with Special Needs, and Student Management to use with federal, state and your local school district policies and procedures to help develop a training program for the monitors in your district. It will be important to clearly define what the responsibilities of the bus driver and monitor are and that teamwork is essential on the bus. Presentation: I.
