Pupil transportation leaders are doing everything in their power to deliver students to and from school every day. Yet, there is daily media coverage highlighting the negative impact on school districts brought on by the national bus driver shortage. 
It is the responsibility of NAPT®  to combat the negativity by shining light on the innovative, student-focused leadership tactics that we have seen time and time again from our membership base. We know that there is not a straightforward solution, therefore, we will use every opportunity that we can in 2023 to provide our members with a professional sounding board made up of actionable insights.
To begin, NAPT® Executive Director and CEO, Molly McGee-Hewitt, PhD, CAE will sit down with Dr. Mervin Daugherty, the Chesterfield County Public Schools Superintendent, to discuss his recently featured EducationWeek® piece, "How My District Overcame Our Dire Bus Driver Shortage."
NAPT® encourages all pupil transportation professionals to attend this webinar as it has been carefully designed to inform, empower, and inspire action in our members.
During this interactive webinar, attendees will: 

  • Hear how Dr. Daugherty's district "cracked the code" and at one time achieved 100 percent staffing;
  • Further discover that even after hiring 263 drivers in 13 months, the solution was not permanent, and additional work was done to regroup and move forward;
  • Gain new perspectives and strategies to help strengthen recruitment and retention rates;
  • Learn ways to highlight the value of pupil transportation's student-focused culture;
  • Have time allocated for Q&A
