About the Conference

The Transporting Students with Disabilities & Preschoolers National Conference, held annually since 1992, offers workable solutions and practical answers to pressing questions about transporting students with special needs — from preschool to adult transition services. It also is designed to not only increase safety for this special student population, but also make local operations more efficient and effective in this challenging economy.

 

This year’s TSD Conference will feature more than three-dozen education sessions and workshops, as well as hands-on training, a trade show and the 18th Annual National Special Needs Team Roadeo, co-presented by School Transportation News and The National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT). This competition features more than two-dozen teams that compete in a skills competition to crown the nation’s top school bus driver and attendant.

 

TSD also offers Professional Development Series training courses by NAPT that offer credits toward the Special Needs Transportation (SNT) certification and the new Certificate of Special Needs Transportation (CSNT) program.

 

HANDS-ON TRAINING, VALUABLE NETWORKING AND COMMUNITY BUILDING

 

The TSD Conference each year welcomes hundreds of professionals nationwide who take advantage of specialized, in-depth curriculum on the policy, practice and operations of transporting students with disabilities and preschoolers. Attendees include:

 

  • School district transportation directors and supervisors
  • State agency representatives
  • Safety trainers
  • Special education professionals
  • Child passenger safety technicians
  • Private school bus company employees
  • Head Start/child care professionals
  • President/Executive/CEO

 

The TSD Conference also offers a one-day trade show, which will feature more than 70 manufacturers and suppliers offering the latest products, solutions and services that target special needs, disabilities and preschoolers.

 

Before the TSD Conference kicks off, there is the 18th National Special Needs Team Roadeo, co-presented by School Transportation News and The National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT). The roadeo features more than two-dozen teams who compete in a skills competition to crown the nation’s top school bus driver and attendant.

NAPT SNT & CSNT ENDORSEMENT AVAILABLE

 

The TSD Conference offers NAPT-approved training courses with credits toward the Special Needs Transportation (SNT) Endorsement program and the new Certificate of Special Needs Transportation (CSNT) program. These Professional Development Series (PDS) courses require additional fees separate from the conference registration cost.

 

Effective July 1, NAPT only accepts new applications for the CSNT program, which builds upon the SNT Endorsement program and requires additional coursework.

 

If you started the SNT Endorsement process before July 1, you are grandfathered into the SNT program and can continue to work toward your SNT Endorsement. The deadline to complete the original Endorsement coursework is June 30, 2016. Visit the NAPT SNT Information Page for more information on these program changes.
