Maria Adams, transportation supervisor of Denver (Colo.) Public Schools, is the latest student transporter to complete the NAPT Special Needs Transportation (SNT) training program, making this endorsement the 40th under the program.
Adams completed the SNT coursework at the NAPT Annual Summit in Memphis, Tenn., and at SNT course offerings in Colorado.
The SNT program provides numerous opportunities for transportation personnel serving students with disabilities to access educational opportunities at both local and national conferences and to gain national recognition for their efforts.
The core curriculum consists of six special needs courses in a variety of different settings, including a school bus roadeo and a trade show of school transportation products and services. The core curriculum is supplemented by two courses of elective instruction from the NAPT Professional Development Series (PDS) Program. The syllabus for the core curriculum has been specifically designed to increase an individual's specific knowledge about transporting students with disabilities.
