    LAW COURSE
    SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION
     

    The Cyr Foundation is pleased to announce the 2018 School Transportation Law Course with our legal partners at Harris Beach PLLC and with NYAPT. 

    PROGRAM:   The day will include coverage in course format of topics related to major legal requirements for school district transportation services.  This will include coverage of basic mandates for transportation, special needs transportation, driver oversight, and related issues.  The review of these key topics will include legal citations and commissioner's rulings where appropriate.  Expect a practical approach to these topics and not simply a recitation of legal requirements.

    HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

    • Each session: 8:00-Noon, with coffee and bagels to start the morning! 
    • The sessions will be presented by our legal counsel at Harris Beach PLLC, and in particular either Douglas Gerhardt and/or Howard Goldsmith, partners with the firm.
    • Each attendee will receive a course book along with a thumb drive containing the course content and other relevant sourcing material.
    • Registration is $145.00 per person for NYAPT Members and $195.00 per person for non-members.

    2018 ADVOCACY DAY
    ATTENDEE

    One of NYAPT's key legislative priorities is passage of legislation that allows school buses to be equipped with Stop Arm Cameras that can be used to ticket motorists who illegally pass stopped school buses.

    This year, we had a good thing happen when the Governor included provisions in his budget proposal to accomplish this.  Due to a number of factors, the Legislature did not include those provisions in the final budget. We are now working on building on the information and discussions we had in the budget season to get the stand-alone bill passed during the remaining 3 months of the session.

    We will hold a Lobby and Advocacy Day on May 8th at the Legislative Office Building on State Street in Albany.  The day will begin at 8:00 AM with continental breakfast for our attendees and exhibitors.   We are working on bus transportation to and from the event for your convenience.  We are also holding a "boot camp" on Monday evening beginning at 6:30 PM at the Marriott to orient all our advocates on what to expect the next day!

    We will have opportunities to share our views on the stop arm camera issue along with several other key issues with State Legislators and with the invited media.  We will also be advocating that day for: (1) drug and alcohol testing enhancement legislation; (2) criminal trespass and assault legislation; (3) expanding the disqualifying crimes in 509-cc;  and (4) enhancements to section 1174 of the V&T law.

    We will also set up limited numbers of legislative meetings for our members and will have supporting materials and memos for your use in those meetings.

    We also have rooms available at the Albany Marriott for $115.00 per night for May 7th if you would like to stay overnight.   Here is the information for those rooms:

    EXHIBIT OPPORTUNITY


    One of NYAPT's key legislative priorities is passage of legislation that allows school buses to be equipped with Stop Arm Cameras that can be used to ticket motorists who illegally pass stopped school buses.

    This year, we had a good thing happen when the Governor included provisions in his budget proposal to accomplish this.  Due to a number of factors, the Legislature did not include those provisions in the final budget. We are now working on building on the information and discussions we had in the budget season to get the stand-alone bill passed during the remaining 3 months of the session.

    We will hold a Lobby and Advocacy Day on May 8th at the Legislative Office Building on State Street in Albany.  The day will begin at 8:00 AM with set-up and continental breakfast for our attendees and exhibitors.   We are working with the "LOB" on AV, internet, and electrical power issues so that we are ready for you on arrival.

    This year to defray some of our costs for the day, we are asking our exhibitors for a small registration fee of $150.00.  This will afford you an opportunity to share your wares and successes with State Legislators and with the invited media.  It is a fine opportunity to get your word out on this sensitive issue and help us move this beneficial legislation forward.

    The bills we are supporting are S.518A by Senator Young and its companion A.321A by Assemblyman Magnarelli.  If you want to produce your own flyers in support of those bills, feel free to do so.

    2018 CONFERENCE ATTENDEE REGISTRATION
    The Cyr Foundation and the
    New York Association for Pupil Transportation Present:



    This year we commemorate the 60 year history of school transportation education conferences in New York State. At this year's conference, we will take opportunities to celebrate that history and the events that have evolved over those many years. 

    Our theme of "A DIAMOND IN THE BUS" suggests the often understated value and contributions of the Yellow School Bus in our schools and our communities. It's a time to shine up that Diamond and share our story first among ourselves and then with our public!

    Attendees at this year's conference will share in educational workshops that address important and emerging issues in our industry and profession as well as important basic operational and management topics that are so essential to our success.

    For the Children!
