Welcome to 2safeschools

Yellow Tin Can

Communication with school staff, parents and children are keys to a safe school bus environment. Parents can not help without information informing how to help.

To help support this effort an increasing library of free photos by photographer James Kraemer are now available for making your own school bus safety brochures, parent letters and community school bus safety adds.

Kraemer found it difficult to find free photos to use with his bus safety adds, articles and training presentations. He decided to produce his own work and make that work available free to others for most uses. Where an identifiable person is shown in a photo a model's release is on file at 2safeschools and is extended to users of our photos.

Although Kraemer retains All Rights to his images - the right to use without fee or royalty is extended as nonexclusive rights to schools, transportation providers, school bus drivers, state PTS, fire, law enforcement and govenment related industries, industry magazines and the press. However, photos may not be commercially resold on CD or other media for profit without first obtaining permission from 2safeschools or the photo's owner. (One or two photos usually can be used as an example of Kraemer's work and where a commercial website provides a link to 2safeschools.)

Acceptable use generally includes, school bus safety websites, a presenter's own slide show for training or education purposes, a photo used in a school bus safety story or training manual that credits the photo source - (Photo courtesy James Kraemer photographer or, city, state and federal agency school bus safety related brochures and manuals, school bus driver transportation manuals and school newsletters, transportation in-district made memos not sold for profit, in house made posters, training materials, letters to parents, press releases and the like. Book authors and others are usually extended permission as well as local and the nation's press, such as newspapers, magazines and television stations.

The lower density of these photos makes them ideal for websites. They are usually adequate for small graphics display in school bus safety newsletters, brochures and school bus safety training materials. They are multible-density convertable and print well when not exceeding the original image size. They display well as B&W graphics, usually without first converting to a B&W image.

The 2safeschools complete graphics library, bus safety slide presentations, video reviews and more are available on CD for a small fee. Click Here for details.

Higher density images are also available from 2safeschools photo library services, Atn: Graphics Library Manager.
