The final training resource released this month feature’s Dan Sperry sharing his family’s story and ideas to improve student safety at the bus stop. While the heart of his story centers around the loss his family experienced when their 11 year old was killed getting off the school bus — the message centers around lessons learned and the things student transportation professionals can do to go one step further in protecting the kids they transport.

Makayla’s Story: It Didn’t Have to Happen
Length: 55:45
Five days before Christmas 2011, Dan Sperry’s family dynamic changed forever. While waiting for his step-daughter, Makayla, to arrive home on the activities bus from dance, he heard a loud thump that sounded like a hood slamming. A few minutes later, one of Makayla’s classmates knocked on his door and told him there had been an accident. Makayla had been hit by a vehicle illegally passing the stopped school bus as she ventured home. Dan and his wife found Makayla lying in the ditch and witnessed the life drain from her 11 year old body. After her death, Makayla’s classmates pushed for new Wyoming laws to equip all school buses statewide with stop-arm video cameras. In this webinar, Dan shares his family’s journey and how the importance of the right kind of training for bus drivers, students, and parents can help save lives – even if the industry can’t stop illegal passing of school buses.
