Transportation Supervisors

Mandated Transportation Supervisor Training

May 19, 2014 - Education Center (Second Floor Auditorium)
*Class time is from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  There is NO fee for this training.*

The Michigan Department of Education has separated Transportation Supervisor training into two segments. Three hours shall be taken in 2013 and three hours in 2014 to be eligible for a supervisor card.  To be eligible for a supervisor card, attendance is required for all six hours.   Please note that Wayne RESA has COMPLETED offerings for the FIRST three hours (2013).  Supervisors who have NOT completed the first three hours must now complete them ONLINE.  For instructions on how to access the ONLINE course for the FIRST three hours, you must send an e-mail to Jennifer Clark at to have the instructions e-mailed back to you.  If you still have questions AFTER receiving the instructions, please call Kim Hooper at 734.334.1319.    

The CURRENT three-hour course being offered on May 1 and May 19, 2014 is the SECOND part of the six-hour requirement. Supervisors who have COMPLETED the FIRST three-hour course but STILL require the SECOND course should enroll in ONE of the May 2014 classes in order to receive a new supervisor card (expiration date of 9/30/2016). IF YOU NEED THE SECOND SEGMENT, YOU ONLY NEED TO ENROLL IN *ONE* OF THE MAY 2014 DATES.  *If you have ALREADY RECEIVED your supervisor card with an expiration date of 9/30/2016, you DO NOT need to enroll at this time.*

Please Note:  Public Act 187 states, "The person or persons in charge of school bus operations at a school shall successfully complete 6 hours of supervisory continuing education every 2 years after the successful completion of the beginning school bus driver training program."If you have additional questions regarding the supervisor training, please contact Kim Hooper at 734.334.1319.
