Greetings From Your GAPT President - Anthony Jackson

Dear Members:

Welcome to the Georgia Association for Pupil Transportation (GAPT). As a member of our organization, we hope to serve you in many ways during the 2021 – 2022 School Year and beyond.

Our vision is that the GAPT will serve as the leading resource for pupil transportation professionals in the State of Georgia and inspire a culture of continuous improvement. Our mission is that the GAPT will build capacity in pupil transportation professionals by providing information, promoting innovation, and serving as an advocate for those professionals as they partner with their communities to meet the needs of their students.

As you and your respective teams prepare for the coming school year, know that the GAPT family is here and available to assist you. Our organization is great because of all of you and because our partnerships and networking efforts continue year-round. According to William H. Danforth, in his book I Dare You! Living Up To Your Full Potential, “Our most valuable possessions are those which can be shared and when shared, they multiply many times.”

Thanks for visiting our website where you will find complete information on our programs and activities. After you have logged in, take a moment to familiarize yourself with your partners in transportation by clicking on GAPT Membership Search located under quick links and navigating from there. I have been a beneficiary of this information many times throughout the years, and I have also been available to assist other school systems because of this shared information. While here, review the contact information for your respective school system for accuracy. In addition, if you are aware of Directors or school systems that are not involved in GAPT please reach out to them. Share the benefits of being a member of GAPT and encourage them to join our organization. Membership ensures that we are available for them and them to us. Remember that the best ability is availability. I look forward to the year ahead and pray for safe, efficient, and successful support of our students throughout the state. May God bless you all.

Sincerely,

Anthony V. Jackson, President
Georgia Association for Pupil Transportation
