Attention to details is important

Just had a conversation with Tina regarding students that have aides on the bus. She was unclear what the difference was between a "1:1 aide", and a "bus aide".
I explained to her that a 1:1 aide is a person who is dedicated to a particular student, generally someone who is very severe. While a a student that requires a bus aide simply requires an adult, other than the driver, on the bus. This shows that they need the additional attention, but are not so severe.

Using this newly gained knowledge, she reaffirmed that the student in question needed a 1:1 which was incorrect. I then explained again which type of aide the student required and why, and Tina said she understood the situation.
