Many districts are considering a hybrid learning model. Some students will return to the classroom 2-3 days a week, with the rest of their learning online. The rest of the students will have a completely online experience, at least for the first semester.
For your buses, this could mean half capacity, or even less than that. It could last for just the first semester, or it could go on through the end of the year. Either way it’s going to require flexibility and agility. As transportation professionals
, we’re going to have to be ready to meet the consistently changing demands of whatever learning model our districts choose.
I’m 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.
