Randy Snyder was appointed Coordinator of Transportation Services for Hilliard City School District in Franklin County in June of 2014. Hilliard City Schools is the 9th largest school district in Ohio and the third largest in Franklin county. Previously he served for almost ten years as the Assistant Manager for Westerville City Schools, also located in Franklin County.

Mr. Snyder is an avid supporter of the Central Region School Bus Road-E-O and the Ohio Pre-Service Program. He is also certified as an OBI in the State of Ohio. He believes that a safe and successful transportation operation must include excellent recruiting, training, equipping, and the empowering of it’s employees. Transportation Professionals play a vital role in the educational process and are important members of the communities in which they serve.

In July of 2015 Randy was appointed chair of the Professional Development Committee of the Ohio Association for Pupil Transportation. He will work closely with the Ohio Association of School Business Officials (OASBO) in developing various programs to present relevant and timely professional development opportunities for Transportation Professionals across the state.

A few of the programs in which Mr. Snyder helped to design and implement are:
– First Time Riders – an event aimed to introduce young riders to the school bus prior to the start of the school year.
– School Bus The Musical – providing the mandated K-3 training program in a theatrical/musical production.
– Re-energizing the Driver Training Program and introduction of a Special Needs training program through partnerships.

– Transportation Supervisor Survival Series 101 and 102 – a program designed for individuals who are brand new to the role of supervising pupil transportation operations and programs.
Mr. Snyder is a member of NAPT and OAPT and has many ties to the Central Ohio transportation community. He believes that networking and building positive, supporting relationships among the transportation community is critical in providing the services which our communities and school systems expect.

Mr. Snyder lives in Delaware county with his wife and two sons.
