Max Christensen - Iowa Dept. of Education
Max serves as the State Director of Pupil Transportation in Iowa and is a Past-President of NASDPTS (National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services), serving in that capacity from 2012-2014, and was part of the NASDPTS Executive Team from 2010-2020. He’s been involved with school transportation since 1987, having started as a head driver/mechanic/supervisor. He worked at three local school districts in Iowa prior to attaining the State Director position in 2003 and has the distinction of being the longest serving current State Director in the nation. Back home, he strives for a progressive agenda to keep Iowa at the forefront in the school transportation industry, with the safety of students as his bottom line in all situations.
In 2018, he was honored to receive the national “Administrator of the Year Award” from School Bus Fleet magazine, in part due to his efforts at making Iowa the first state in the nation to have all school bus drivers trained in how to recognize the warning signs for victims of human trafficking. Since then, several other states have followed his lead in battling this horrendous crime. His most satisfying achievement occurred in 2019 as he led the fight to bring legislation to Iowa mandating lap/shoulder belts in all new school buses. In January of 2022 he received the “Outstanding Anti-Trafficking Service Award” from Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery, again for his accomplishment in training 100% of Iowa’s school bus drivers in this area.
His passions include his family, traveling, airplanes, and photography. He and his wife of 28 years, Lisa, are the proud parents of their 15-year old daughter Olivia and their 13-year old son Isaiah, both of whom were adopted from China as infants. With kids that age in the house, there is never a dull, or quiet, moment!
