Every special education vehicle must have an attendant responsible for assisting special education children during their ride to and from school. An attendant is also required to assist each child from the bus to the front door of the school.
Attendants must be at least 21 years old and certified in order to transport students. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) mandates standards that apply to school bus attendants across the state. A key component of certification is completion of required training at an approved Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT) training location.
