SafePUPIL School Bus Training Reviews…

Brady ISD“I have enjoyed using SafePUPIL videos for several reasons: The program is easy to use, time efficient, and the videos cover the whole gamut of what a bus driver needs to know! I also like the fact that as SafePUPIL develops and adds videos to their menu, they are offered to be added to our site at NO EXTRA CHARGE. It is hard to get very many drivers together at once to view other individual videos (such as DVD’s). With SafePUPIL, each driver can watch independently at his/her own pace, or I can assign certain videos with a completion date. Finally, I have found SafePUPIL to be very well worth the money. You can’t beat it!”

Clark County“Clark County R-1 Schools uses SafePUPIL for in-service training for its bus drivers. SafePUPIL could not be easier for our drivers and transportation director to use. The District receives instant documentation of the training with reports, and each driver receives individual certificates of completion. SafePUPIL training modules are timely, relevant, and provide effective, required training. Coupled with in-district training, SafePUPIL is an excellent choice for bus driver training.”

Conroe ISD“By using the CDL Tutorial program we are able to turn folks out in days instead of weeks. Safe Pupil is a wonderful investment!”

Fayetteville Public Schools“Fayetteville Public Schools Transportation Department uses the SafePUPIL program not only in our annual In-service meetings but also in our day-to-day running of our department. We assign new drivers the SafePUPIL Program right away to help them become more familiar with different rules and regulations of driving a school bus and how to conduct themselves with children, parents and other staff. SafePUPIL is a GREAT training program that our drivers find very easy to use.

I personally enjoy the updates that SafePUPIL provides me when staff members complete each program and when new programs are added. SafePUPIL also provides wonderful informative webinars at no extra charge. The SafePUPIL staff is very helpful and is a great bunch of people.”

Froid Public Schools“Froid school bus drivers and administration have found this program an excellent way to meet the requirements by our state and also an excellent learning tool. Thanks for your continued updates and assistance.”

“Grant Parish School Board initially purchased the Safe Pupil program for use in the transportation department. Then we quickly realized that the program could be utilized system wide. Safe Pupil has made recordkeeping for state mandated training, for every employee, extremely easy. Our human resource department no longer has to keep up with thousands of completion certificates and who has not completed their training. Now we just print a report! That easy!

“As for the transportation department, Safe Pupil offers numerous training modules for school bus drivers and attendants. Trying to get bus drivers and attendants together at each school every month for safety training is a thing of the past. With Safe Pupil modules and testing, I KNOW the drivers and attendants are getting the needed information. We also count those minutes/hours toward our annual certification time requirements.

“Grant Parish has just begun to use Safe Pupil system wide; however, the transportation department started using it this last school year. There are many ways that this program can be used to make training and verification so much easier, such as posting notices on the main page where everyone logs in, verification of receipt of documents, messages, etc. We are using Safe Pupil to document receipt of handbooks, policy manuals and documents that are required to be given to each employee every year.
“We have transitioned into using Safe Pupil fairly easily. The support and help from Safe Pupil is unequal to any software support team I have dealt with previously. I highly recommend Safe Pupil!

Jenkins County Schools“At the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year, I was appointed the new Transportation Coordinator for the Jenkins County School System. I knew that several things needed to be changed, I was a driver for 22 years and I drew upon that experience. One thing that I wanted to change was emergency evacuations – the way we did things did not work.

I made several changes. First I supplied the SafePUPIL Emergency Evacuation (course) to all grade levels and all schools, so it could be presented in the classroom on the smart boards and PowerPoint systems. This was done when the students could not go outside because of weather. This way, class instruction time was not interrupted with the students going out to a bus for evacuation training during class. Second, all drivers were given Emergency Evacuation training and the SafePUPIL Emergency Training (course) was used for classroom training. Third, all drivers were required to do evacuation training with their bus three times a year and sign the proper documentation.

On October 27, 2009, when Mr. Anfield evacuated the bus, the training proved to be deciding factor, the students were calm and everyone exited the bus safely.”

Lewistown Public Schools“Thank you for the great SafePUPIL driver training program. Programs such as this have been long overdue and your continued advancement of new and innovative additions to the program are exciting and fresh.

In as much as it is our belief that nothing should replace face-to-face driver training, SafePUPIL is an effective and valuable addition to our transportation staff training program. Having the ability to schedule training modules for an entire group, or to schedule a specific training module to individuals to improve their knowledge and understanding, is an invaluable tool. It is enhanced by the included feature of maintaining permanent records of all of the trainings completed in the SafePUPIL program. Our staff appreciates the quality of the training modules as well as the ability to study independently in the comfort of individual personal settings.

Lewistown Public Schools Transportation Department thanks you for your vision and your commitment to assist us in the training of our transportation staff – to help them be safe and effective school bus drivers.”

Pottsville ISD“We would like to thank you for offering us the SafePUPIL training modules. We have seen a lot of training videos, but none with the ability to quiz the drivers after viewing and then keep a record of their participation in the training modules like we have now with SafePUPIL.

I have a valuable tool in being able to monitor and access driver training records in just a few key strokes. Training time that would require them coming to the shop for a sit down lecture type meeting has been simplified into a computer based training module that they can access from home, and view the video several times if they miss a portion, or review it for any reason. Our participation has been wonderful. The drivers like the informative short videos that get to the point. We can print off a certification of completion for their records and offer them a copy of the certificate to take home. We have utilized SafePUPIL for several years now and are completely satisfied with the customer service we receive from their staff.

I highly recommend this training program to all school districts.”

Puxico R-8 Schools“I’ve used a lot of Training material in my career, and I have found SafePUPIL to be among the best. The ease of use for the drivers, and the detailed reports for me, make it the most cost and time saving way to train. You can even use it for safety meetings and in-service training. Plugin the laptop, go online, pick a subject, and you have training.

SafePUPIL takes something as important as training and makes it easy, time saving, cost effective, and relevant for our needs. Their service and support are second to none. They are a great partner in transportation training.”

White Oak ISD“SafePUPIL has been very beneficial to us at White Oak ISD. Safety of our children is our number one priority. Through their webinars and modules, SafePUPIL provides our transportation team with reminders of our role in this process. We are constantly trying to improve our department, and SafePUPIL helps us tremendously.”
