The District recognizes that a school bus which operates properly is more responsive to the driver’s command and enables the driver to devote attention to the driving task. The importance and the continuous safe operating characteristics of the school bus are vital to the District’s pupil transportation system. An untrained mechanic is a poor investment of funds. Therefore, mechanics will attend at least eight hours of in-service training each year consistent with the requirements of the Standards for Utah School Buses and Operations and the national standards.Standards for Utah School Buses and Operations p. 22 (2019)
