The TAA Lifetime Members were asked into a committee where they selected this years’ scholarship winners! I am pleased to announce those winners as follows:

TAA Sponsored Scholarship:
              Sandra Rodriguez, Tempe Union High School District
AAPT Sponsored Scholarship:
              Greg Barazza, Glendale Union High School District
The-Trust Sponsored Scholarship:
              Machelle Govan, Laveen Elementary School District

For those that attended the NAPT courses for 2017 and were requesting the official NAPT

Also, some information regarding those that attended the NAPT courses for 2017 and were requesting the official attendee certificates from the following courses:

PDS 203, Communication Skills in Transportation
PDS 501, Fleet Maintenance
PDS 701, Introduction to Transportation Leadership

 Last year the certification process changed from NAPT which issues the official certificate, which as a result directly affected those that have yet to receive their certificates for last year’s participation. To rectify this, those that will be attending the 2018 conference can pick those certificates up from the registration table (see Shannon Weber). If you will not be attending the conference this summer, please email us at to confirm your contact information for mailing your certificate. We deeply apologize this has taken so long to get straightened out!

Those of you that are big on social media, may now start using the #2018TAAFlagstaff to follow all of the information leading up to and during the conference. Our Facebook page and Twitter page will be using this hashtag to record our event this year! I am looking forward to seeing each one of you in just a few short weeks. Until then, I hope your school year closeouts go smoothly and safe travels to everyone! Should you have any questions, comment or concerns, feel free to reach out to us.

Take care and as always, drive safe!

President, Transportation Administrators of Arizona

Hello Friends & Colleagues!

We are just 35 days away from the 2018 TAA Summer Conference. This conference is really taking shape and we are just about done putting together a packed agenda that you will definitely not want to miss. We are bringing back Jesus Villahermosa for an in-depth look into school bus safety as well as Jared Buckley to share his techniques to turning stress into success. Our friends from DPS and ADOT will be joining us on Thursday along with a great 3 nights of exciting entertainment. The Executive Board will be meeting on May 17th to finalize the agenda and make sure we are all set to get you everything you need to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year. If you have not done so already, registration is still available at the regular conference rates until May 31st. June 1st the late registration fees go into effect, so be sure to get registered ASAP!
