​Regional WAPT Chapter Supervisor's Meetings

Some History

The Washington Association of Pupil Transportation (WAPT) was organized in 1976 by a group of transportation supervisors to promote networking and education for transportation supervisors around the state.  Over the last 35 years, the organization has evolved to include all persons involved in pupil transportation. Membership is open to Superintendents, Central Office Administrators, Supervisors, Dispatchers, Driver Instructors, and Shop Personnel.  The membership is divided into geographical chapters with each chapter meeting during the year at conveniently located facilities.
