  1. 1. ADVISOR FINAL REPORT - Please view our presentation at: httpszllprezicontlegau3kvhgyh / edit1#14 SCHOOUORGANIZATION NAME: Twin Oak Elementary GRADE LEVEL(S): Grade 5 ADVISOR(S) NAME: Aimee Humphrey STUDENT NAMES: Makenna a Ethan ', Jamie , Molly 1. PROBLEM STATEMENT Describe, in specific terms, the problem you have selected. Our team surveyed students and parents and found that students were concerned about: teasing and name calling, disobedience, and unsafe bus situations. A general lack of respect especially on the school bus. Parents answers could be boiled down to: Lack of compassion for others. The team decided the issue to try to solve here is how to build respect on the buses. Based on your research, list at least three facts about this problem. There were 1,236 fatal school transportation-related crashes from 2001 to 2010, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The majority (72%) of those people were occupants of other vehicles involved. occupants of school transportation vehicles accounted for 7% ofthe fatalities, while the remaining 21% were non-occupants - pedestrians, bicyclists, etc. There were 49 (40%) school-age pedestrians killed in school transportation-related crashes between the ages of 5 and 7. You should also answer the following questions: How does the problem affect your school/ community? The crashes caused by distracted bus drivers actually hurt, more often, the people driving other cars or pedestrians. We are concerned about making the entire community safer by cutting down of the distracted driving. How serious is the problem? Our drivers report that they are tired of inappropriate bus behavior and that they would like principals and teachers to come up with some consequences that are meaningful. What individuals or groups are most affected by the problem? The team decided the following parties are affected on a daily basis: Students, drivers, other vehicle drivers, principals, teachers, busgarage coordinators. 2. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS What possible solutions to the problem did your team identify? Many solutions have been discussed. After speaking with the bus garage coordinator and principal, the team realized the bus drivers who report the worst behavior do not have the time to get to know their riders. The short trips were the worst. One solution is to give drivers a book of get-to-know-you games. Trivia, question of the day, eye-spy ideas. Anything to have more structured relationship building conversations happening even on short trips. Another idea is a Bus-of-the-Month program. Student behavior will be rated on a scale of 1-5 each day for the month. The bus with the best score wins a blue ribbon to display. The team also thought a proactive plan may be to build the relationships at the beginning of the year with a Donuts Vtñth The Driver event. Students and drivers would be invited to the school event easily in the year to give them time to learn each others names and expectations. Who would need to be involved to implement your recommendations?
  2. 2. What person(s), organizations, or agencies could you contact for help or information? Our PTO would be crucial in the funding of these initiatives. We also thought local bakeries may donate services, or even pizza delivery services (in place of donuts) since their drivers are affected by bus drivers being alert as well. To whom are recommendations directed? We will direct our recommendations to the 4th graders as we are out of time to implement this two-year project. 3. ACTION STEPS What steps have you taken to contribute to solving this problem and/ or implementing your recommendations? Our action steps will be determined by next year's team. 4. RESULTS What were the results of the team's endeavors? We look forward to reporting positive results next year!
