Burdine to present at STAK

Jeanetta Burdine has been asked to present to 2 trainings at the Student Transportation Association of Kentucky (STAK). Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 conference will not be held in full, however event locations are being created across the state. Burdine will present at Lynn Camp High School in Knox County on June 15 and 16th.
She will present topics that are relevant to school district transportation departments across the state, primarily looking at those that concern bus drivers. Her first “Why I Bleed Yellow” which looks at why drivers tend to stay for decades. Her second topic presented will be “The 3 R’s-Recruiting, Retention and Recognition”. With school bus driver shortages across the state, this training is directed on potential resolutions to these shortages.
The Student Transportation Association of Kentucky started out as KDTA – the Kentucky Driver Trainers Association in 1995. The organization changed their name in 2012 to reflect the diversity of the transportation personnel served by the organization. Annual conferences offer training for all school district employees who work with pupil transportation and all are welcome. STAKs primary mission is the safe transportation of Kentucky students.
Burdine is a 30year veteran of student transportation, with the last 23 of those years spent here in McCreary County. She currently serves as the district Driver Trainer.
