OUSD Bus Drivers Train for Random Acts of Violence

Bus Attack.JPGThe safety and well-being of all students who utilize OUSD transportation services was the focus of a one-day training session Tuesday for more than 50 district drivers.  Training included table-top classroom exercises and hands-on scenarios involving active shooters, hostage situations, bomb threats and suspicious packages.  Read the full story in today's Union Tribune.
