Professional Development Opportunities
CASBO has been working with a couple of long-time CASTO members to develop a School Transportation Leadership certificate program. CASTO supported this effort. The program will occur over ten months and consume one weekend per month, with a Friday evening class, and an all-day Saturday class. This will be a rigorous program that is designed to train current and prospective school transportation leaders in the technical aspects of the job of Director, Supervisor or Manager, as well as prepare students for the elements and nuances of leadership. Check out our new Professional Development page for more information.
