No Touch Loading

ALC SCHOOLS video series – “Have You Heard”

Many districts are considering implementing a no-touch loading and unloading policy for all of their transportation providers. This obviously doesn’t change anything for general population school bus riders, but for students with special needs it could be new way of doing things that parents and teachers will have to get used to.

It means that parents would be responsible for loading their children in the vehicle during morning pick-up and unloading them at the end of the day. It also would mean that a teacher, aide, monitor or nurse (depending on the student’s needs) would be responsible for unloading them when they got to school, and then loading them in the vehicle at the end of the school day.

There are some districts who prefer this method anyway and have been doing it for years. For others it could be a new way of thinking and may cause a few hiccups early on. 

What topics are the focus of your district? Let us know so we can feature them here.
We’re hoping that by giving you more insight into some of the things we’re hearing that it will help as you plan for what’s coming too. Transportation directors across the United States are being asked to come up with some creative options, and as their partner, we have been working with them to do just that.

Here at ALC, our mission is to give students with special transportation needs an equal opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed. We understand that this school year is coming with some extra challenges but no matter what the challenges are, as we face them together, our students will benefit. 

Let’s keep the conversation going, what topics are the focus of your district? Let us know so we can tackle them together!

It’s not just what we do – it’s what we love to do.
