On Saturday, April 22nd, the Wauseon Transportation Department, under the supervision of Pam Waugh, hosted the Northwest Regional Bus and Bus Safety ROAD-E-O on the site of our elementary / middle school.

The purpose of the ROAD-E-O is to develop an organizational plan which makes the Ohio School Bus Driver Safety ROAD-E-O available to all school bus drivers for the promotion of safety, professionalism and recognition through the cooperative effort of school districts, Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE), Ohio Association for Pupil Transportation (OAPT), Ohio Department of Education (ODE), Ohio Education Association (OEA) and the Ohio School Bus Mechanics Association (OSBMA).

The Regional ROAD-E-O’s are held the third Saturday in April with the State competition to follow the first Saturday in May. The top six driver’s from each region move on to the State level.

Over 40 drivers from 10 different school districts participated in this event. There were many volunteers and local donations for this event including members of the Wauseon Middle School Junior National Honor Society. Ms. Waugh was pleased to announce that over $1000 was donated to the Wauseon Elementary School Food Pantry from the proceeds of the ROAD-E-O auction.
