    For the New Class, drivers Must Arrive at 9:00 AM to fill out the necessary paper needed for fingerprinting at Security Services, have then bring their Green form already filled out. Make sure they bring their driver’s license, first aid and DDC with them. Class will start promptly at 10:00 AM and will last 2 1/2 hours. Drivers will need to schedule a drive test with our training department after they have cleared the background check.

    Re-certification classes start promptly 10:00 and will last approximately 2 1/2 hours. Make sure they bring their Pink form filled out, driver’s license, first aid and DDC with them to class. This class focuses on policy and procedure changes, Child Abuse Reporting and Safety Equipment demonstration. All vehicles are subject to inspections at any time.

    Fingerprinting must be done during the month the class was taken. A map with directions and hours of Security Services will be sent with each applicant. All drivers have 30 days from date of in-service to complete an OSHA approved first aid class (Not done on line) and a Defensive Driving Course, these are district rules.

    I will need copies of the certification cards from these classes to put in the driver’s file. Please remember if any first aid, defensive driving certifications or certification expire, your driver will become in-active and not allowed to transport PPS Students until I received current certifications.

     If your driver had a Washington driver’s license they will need to bring a current copy of thier driving record for the last 3 years. Upon renewal they are required to bring a copy of their current driving record. If your driver had a license in another state within the last 3 years, they will need to bring a copy of their driving record for that state to class.

    Because space is limited I ask each Company to email a list of no more than 4 drivers you plan to send to class (Make sure they attend appropriate class). If they are late for class they will need to re-schedule. Some classes may be cancelled in advance due to low attendance. CLASSES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.


    If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me by email svanbagg@pps.net or  503 916-6901 ext. 77283.

    Looking forward to a great school year!
