The calls for change came after Kathelynn Occena, 9, died in 2007 when her school bus crashed into a parked gravel truck in Calgary.

After Jenny Noble's death, the province released a report with 10 recommendations to help improve school bus safety, from strobe lights and reflective tape to the recruiting and training of drivers.

Noble said she's happy the recommendations were released, but she's still concerned about how they're implemented in each school division across the province.

"I had the experience with Wolf Creek School Division here at one point shortly after Jenny died where … the strobes were there but because of the deflectors they didn't shine necessarily straight back," said Nobel.

"Wolf Creek ended up going in there and retrofitting a little lift on all of those strobes and lifting them up over top of those deflectors and it worked well."
