Contract for services to a New York qualified vendor to develop, write, and implement curriculum for an instructor seminar for training school bus drivers, attendants, and monitors. The contractor will be required to develop the curriculum, locate suitable training spaces, provide staff for and coordinate training activities, and ensure that the curriculum is properly implemented.
NYSED is seeking proposals for the development, writing and delivery of the annual Professional Development Seminar (PDS) Curriculum for School Bus Driver Instructors (SBDIs) required under Education Law 3650 and Commissioner’s Regulations 156.3. The Professional Development Seminar is the major tool for providing updated and continual training of School Bus Driver Instructors, who in turn provide required school bus safety training and annual refresher training to public and non-public school bus drivers, monitors and attendants. NYSED is seeking eligible applicants that can:
1. Develop curriculum for educational setting within the pupil transportation industry.
2. Locate and secure suitable classroom space across the State.
3. Demonstrate the capacity to adequately staff, schedule and coordinate the statewide training
4. Ensure that the MIs are certified and teach the full approved curriculum without material deviations.
In order to ensure compliance, the applicant will conduct random onsite visits as outlined in the RFP.
The purpose of the PDS refresher content is to hone the presenting skills and professional development of SBDIs and supply all the technical and teaching materials necessary for them to conduct the three required annual training refreshers for all NYS school bus drivers, monitors and attendants.
