School bus evacuation drills are as important a part of the school program as are fire drills to evacuate a school building.   There is an urgent need, due to the increased number of pupils being transported, as well as ever-increasing number of crashes on the highways, to acquaint students with their roles and responsibilities. Pupils need to know how to properly vacate a school bus in case of an emergency.

To ensure student safety , school bus evacuation drills are completed a minimum of twice a year for all buses contracted through Burlington Township Schools.
