School Bus Safety Program in Berlin Central School District

Every year the Berlin CSD Transportation Department holds emergency school bus evacuation drills for Mountaineers.
Yesterday, students at the Berlin Middle High and Berlin Elementary schools took part in one of those drills and were able to practice for a potential emergency.

​BCSD’s Supervisor of Transportation​ ​Jeaneatte Alderman shared that it is a good reminder​ for students to participate in the interactive drills that simulates an emergency.
During the drills students learn about bus safety features. Through these drills bus drivers and monitors teach students how to act swiftly and safely in an emergency.

Additionally, Berlin CSD has ​recently ​partnered with Rensselaer County and BusPatrol to launch a new school bus safety program, to safeguard students on the journey to and from school.

The school buses in the Berlin CSD fleet have now been outfitted with advanced safety technology including AI-powered stop-arm cameras to deter motorists from illegally passing stopped school buses.

Update from the BCSD Transportation Department 1/5/23

There have been some technical difficulties with the new SpotMyBus GPS trackers and the BCSD Transportation Department is working with SpotMyBus to rectify the problem, however, it will take longer than expected.
The district will update the community as soon as there is a clear time frame for the system to be back up and running.
We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing and appreciate your patience with this matter as SpotMyBus resolves the issue.
Please have your students at their bus stop 5 minutes ahead of their scheduled time.

Stop on Red Kids Ahead! Is the motto from the New York  State Department of Motor Vehicles when it comes to bus stop safety. 

Berlin CSD recently added three new buses to their fleet and this morning BCSD’s Transportation Supervisor, Ms. Jeaneatte Alderman, demonstrated the newly purchased “First Light Safety” products.

While continuously looking at every angle to improve student safety, we purchased three new buses with ultra bright illuminated stop arms and school bus signs,” said Ms. Alderman. “These stop arms are visible from 1000 feet, the goal is to reduce the amount of illegal passing of school buses by other motorists and increase student safety.”

As school reopens next month please Stop on Red Kids Ahead!
