Guam - With the start of the school year rapidly approaching the Department of Education and the Department of Public Works held their joint bus driver training today.

According to DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez the training focuses on discipline and safety protocols, developing cultural sensitivity and developing relationships with school principals. "In the past years we really understood that sometimes you have incidents that happen on buses, what happens when kids misbehave, what happens when you have a health or safety incident on the bus, what do we do when students can't be located. All the sorts of things that happen on the bus. It occurred to us over the past couple of year that these are still our students and we're partners as agencies, DPW and DOE are partnered at the hip because we rely on our bus drivers to get our kids to and from school and to keep them safe throughout," he explained.

The training will continue over the next few days to ensure that bus drivers are thoroughly prepared.
