Bus Aides for City of Tonawanda Schools
Did you know that not all of our city buses have aides?
Bus aides are not currently mandated by NYS but we are trying to get it added to the budget for next year. Please sign this petition to show your support for the need for aides on City of Tonawanda school buses.
We as parents/citizens are requesting that the City of Tonawanda School District place Bus Aides/Bus Monitors on all school buses. This will help ensure the safety of all children riding the school bus within the City of Tonawanda School District. Placing a Bus Aide/Bus Monitor on school buses will help with the supervision of these children and will cut down on behavioral issues that may arise while riding the school bus. The school bus drivers are required to transport children safely without distraction to and from school. They are not required to supervise children while driving a school bus.
All who are signing this petition agree that the City of Tonawanda School District should look into this matter and consider the allocation of funding for the implementation of Bus Aides/Bus Monitors on these school buses, and most importantly keeping our children safe.
There is also a paper petition being circulated. Please only sign ONE- either the paper petition or this online petition. Any City of Tonawanda resident can sign the petition, your kids do not need to attend a COT school to show your support.
Deadline to sign is March 22nd.
Action Petitioned For: We, the undersigned, are concerned parents/citizens who urge the City of Tonawanda School District to act now to place Bus Aides/Bus Monitors on school buses to ensure the safety of our children.
