23 Air Bag Information Air bag technology has improved over the years, however air bags can still present a significant danger to students. It is recommended students avoid riding in the front passenger seat of a Type III school bus until they are twelve years of age and/or adult size.

24 Required Driver Evaluations Annually the driver of a type III school bus must be evaluated and certified to operate a Type III school bus. Pre-trip evaluation Behind the wheel evaluation Evaluator certification

25 Understanding Student Conduct Control behavior by communicating the rules Stay seated Stay buckled up Face forward Do not distract the driver Deal with misconduct by pulling over if necessary, control the behavior, then proceed Contact supervisor if necessary Do not allow bad behavior to go unchecked, know your district/company policy and ask for help if necessary Always put safety first for all students that ride your Type III school bus

26 Students with special needs Special needs students may not fully understand all the safety rules necessary for a safe ride. Know that if routine is changed some special needs students will not understand and may act out. Questions you may have regarding a particular special needs students may best be answered by their parent, guardian, or teacher. Some special needs students with behavioral disorders may require assigned seats and closer attention then most students. Younger students may not say anything even though they are having some difficulty on the bus. Always check that tie-down devices are secured, before leaving the student pick up location.

27 Minnesota State Laws & Rules of the Road You must have your driver license in possession while driving. You must have a current/signed/completed pre-trip inspection form in your procession for the current day of operation. State law requires you to wear your seat belt at all times when operating the Type III school bus. You must signal all turns and lane changes. You must stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Since you are driving a Type III school bus you are not required to stop at railroad crossings, but you must use due caution non-the-less. As a driver of a Type III school bus you must operate the vehicle with due care in consideration of traffic and road conditions. This may require you to drive slower than posted speed limits to ensure student safety. As the driver of a Type III school bus you are responsible to ensure all required safety equipment is present when transporting students. Remember only emergency stops are permitted on interstate highways, if you do need to stop for any another reason, exit the freeway/highway before stopping. Ensure compliance with local school bus safety policies adopted by your district.

28 Emergency Situations Plan evacuations for your Type III school bus Make sure the students know all the exits and how to use them Keep a list of contact names and phone numbers in case of a mechanical problem Make sure all students are dressed for inclement weather in case your Type III school bus is unable to provide a proper shelter until help arrives Plan your route before you leave to avoid an emergency situation Make sure that all safety equipment is available if needed

29 Accident Procedures Stop immediately in the safest area possible. Assist any injured person. Do not move any injured person unless it is absolutely necessary. Evacuate the vehicle if: There is fire or danger of fire. The vehicle is in an unsafe position. There is a danger of drowning.

30 Accident Procedures (Continued) Provide your name, driver s license number and insurance information. Do not discuss the accident with anyone except police and school district personnel. Record as much information listed on the forms located in the first aid kit. Contact Transportation Services as soon as possible. Transportation Information cards have been placed in each Type III vehicle.

31 Type III Pre-Trip Inspection Minnesota Rule You are required to conduct a pre-trip inspection of your Type III School Bus every day that it is used to transport students.

32 Pre-Trip Inspection Form

33 Pre-Trip Routine Use the diagram on the reverse side of the Pre-Trip Inspection form to assist you with your inspection. Start with the mechanical check, then continue counterclockwise around the vehicle during the external inspection and finish with the internal inspection. If no defects are found, sign and date the front of the form. The form is to remain in the vehicle.

34 What if I discover a problem during my pretrip inspection? If you discover a mechanical problem during the pre-trip inspection contact a supervisor or maintenance shop personnel to ensure repairs are made prior to operating the Type III school bus.

35 Out of Service Defects If you return to Transportation Services after hours and your Type III School Bus has a defect, place an OUT OF SERVICE card on the front seat of the vehicle to alert others of the problem. The cards are located to the right of the key drop box by Door 1.

36 Know where the safety equipment is stored in your Type III School Bus.. Body fluid clean up Triangles, to be placed on roadway to warn other traffic if you break down. First Aid Kit Fire extinguisher must be fully charged. Verify this by checking the charge indication arrow is in the green zone.

37 Remember to always leave the Type III School Bus clean after usage.

38 Post Trip Inspection Some Type III school bus seat backs are high and can hide students and items.

39 Congratulations on completing the Type III School Bus Training Program!
