Transportation Program Audit Handbook
School vehicles and school drivers are among districts’ greatest day-to-day risk exposures. Consider the following:
In recognition of the foregoing, the Trust has developed a new Transportation Program Audit Handbook, designed to help member districts establish an effective audit process for their transportation programs.
The audit handbook focuses not just on compliance with federal and state law, but also on adoption of best practices when/where possible. The handbook offers flexibility, too—it can be used as part of a self-audit process, or incorporated into an audit assisted by a Trust loss control consultant. Either way, using the handbook will help districts achieve safer, more compliant, and more successful transportation programs.
The Transportation Program Audit Handbook can be viewed or downloaded, for free, on the Trust website at www.the-trust.org. (After logging in to the site, go to “Manuals and Handbooks” under the “Resources & Training” tab.)
