NYAPT Partners with
“Busing on the Lookout”
to Do Our Part in Eliminating
Human Trafficking of our Children
Busing on the Lookout (BOTL) is a program designed to address the terrible issue of human trafficking.
There are an estimated 40 million victims of human trafficking globally, including school aged children in the United States. School bus drivers are in the unique position to address this problem. BOLT has developed a training tool to educate and equip members of the school bus transportation industry with the information necessary to enable them to fight human trafficking as part of their everyday jobs.
Click “School Bus Drivers on the Lookout” below to access the BOLT toolkit and learn how to do your part to eliminate human trafficking of our children.
NATIONAL SCHOOL BUS SAFETY WEEK
OCTOBER 19-23, 2020
The theme is "Red Lights Mean STOP!" The theme of National School Bus Safety Week is derived from the Poster Contest the year before. The 2019 winning poster, depicted above, was drawn by Bryan Torres-Tavarez, a 12th Grader at Stars Academy in Paterson, New Jersey.
Stop for the Bus!
It is estimated that over 50,000 private vehicles pass stopped school buses with red lights flashing on a typical school day. With schools opening soon, school buses will be on the road again. When you see a stopped school bus with red lights flashing, STOP FOR THE BUS! A child’s life depends on it!
Congratulations to our new President Harold Nicholson as he takes over the reins of NYAPT. Harold was sworn in at the July 13th NYAPT Annual Meeting and introduced his President's Theme for his presidency at that time.
