School bus evacuation training varies by district

from KXAN-TV

From March 1: After the legislature reversed a requirement for school bus evacuation training, districts now choose what works for them. KXAN News found policies vary from district to district and sometimes even school to school within a district, making it more difficult for parents to know what their kids are learning about escaping dangerous situations like crashes or fires involving buses. In 2007, the state legislature passed a bill requiring school bus evacuation training in the fall and spring. The training also had to last at least an hour, with part of the session on a bus. However, in 2009, lawmakers passed the current law, which made the training optional and recommended school bus evacuation training once every year. more
