National School Bus Safety Week
THEME*: “BULLY FREE ZONE!”
Ohio joins the nation in celebrating National School Bus Safety Week, October 17-21, 2016! This is an opportunity for the entire industry to focus upon anti-bullying efforts, and to recognize the safe, efficient and reliable service provided each day by our school transportation personnel.
In Ohio, approximately 17,000 school buses transport nearly one million children, one million miles, each day.
School bus drivers transport all sorts of children, in all sorts of weather, in all sorts of neighborhoods with a single goal: Safety.

*Please note the theme for National School Bus Safety Week is not the same as the theme for the annual poster contest. The theme of the current year’s safety week becomes the theme of the poster contest for the following year. This enables the winning poster to be used for the following year’s National School Bus Safety Week. If this is unclear, please call OAPT at 614-401-OAPT, or NAPT at 800-989-NAPT.
