LAUSD Participates in School Bus Safety Roadeo
The LAUSD Roadeo Team competed in the annual California School Bus Safety Roadeo, which took place on April 25, 2009 (Southern Sectional) and May 24, 2009 (State). The California School Bus Safety Roadeo is an event that gives school bus drivers from across the State the opportunity to compete against each other using their driving skills and knowledge of applicable driving laws. The event was administered by the California Department of Education Office of School Transportation and the California Association of School Transportation Officials (CASTO). The CASTO Roadeo committee was coordinated by our very own Janet Hutchison of CRC.
