KAPT New Directors Mentoring Program
The Kentucky Association of
Pupil Transportation would like to make you aware of a service we are
offering to new transportation directors across the state. KAPT has
developed a mentoring program that is available free of charge to
directors who need assistance or guidance with their roles and
responsibilities. This service is available regardless of whether the
director is a member of our organization, although s/he will certainly be
welcome to join in order to take full advantage of all of KAPT's benefits.
Superintendents and/or Transportation Directors may contact me to request
being partnered with a mentor who will serve as a resource for information
and will be available to share his/her experience and expertise in the
many areas of transportation responsibility. There is no expense involved
unless your director would like to travel to another district, in which
case we will make arrangements for your director to visit a district with
similar situations, resources etc. Again, there is no obligation to join
KAPT, although we hope this offer demonstrates our organizations
commitment to professionalism regarding the SAFE and efficient
transportation of our states most precious resource our students. For more
information or to request a mentoring partner to be assigned to your
director, contact me at email@example.com
