New Iowa STOP Course Requirement

Busing on the Lookout and Iowa Department of Education Logos

Busing On the Lookout (BOTL) Curriculum

Starting in July the Busing On the Lookout (BOTL) curriculum is a requirement for ALL new school bus drivers as part of the Iowa STOP course. BOTL educates and equips drivers to understand the human trafficking issue and, more importantly, empowers drivers to take the steps that could end up saving a life.

When building an army to fight a crime like human trafficking, the bus industry has a key role to fill. Through their sheer numbers, extensive travels, and the nature of their jobs, members of the bus industry—commercial and school—are uniquely positioned to provide an extra set of eyes and ears for law enforcement in recovering victims and arresting traffickers.

STS Highlights: May 2019

This month I am personally participating in National Bike Month, like I do each year. As an avid cyclist, I like to promote this month as a public service. There are a lot of people, vehicles, and hazards on the road. This month, please be especially aware of your surroundings and safely share the road with pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, automobiles, school buses, and everyone else trying to get from his/her “Point A” to “Point B.” Enjoy this month’s resources!
