Safe driving, safe riding 
Keeping students safe doesn’t end at the school building doors. National School Bus Safety Week (Oct. 22-26) draws attention to bus safety but transportation directors, bus drivers and state officials spend all year making sure Kentucky’s more than 600,000 students get to and from school safely.

Using energy
KSBA’s School Energy Managers Project which has saved districts $225 million in cumulative costs avoided, is ending, but that doesn’t mean monitoring energy consumption and using the data to guide facility decisions should. Find out how schools can keep the energy awareness going. 

Classrooms compromised
As school boards and administrators make security enhancements, such as secure vestibules, cameras and metal detectors, experts urge them not to overlook the one thing that can undermine all those updates – humans. 

Show me the money
At KSBA’s Fall Regional Meetings, board members and administrators are learning about financial transparency and charter school finances at the event which have drawn interest from state legislators and the governor. 

Welcome surprise
Teachers in at least three districts got a welcomed back-to-school surprise – money to buy classroom supplies. In each case, the donor wanted to help because teachers typically spend their own money to get their students what they need.
School safety is in the spotlight after school shootings both here and across the nation, but keeping students safe also extends to the thousands of buses that crisscross Kentucky’s roads each day. Safe transit takes maintenance, training and knowledge of the law.
