Conduct on School Buses




While the law requires the school district to furnish school accommodations, including transportation, it does not relieve the parents from the responsibility of supervision until such time as the child boards the bus in the morning and after the child leaves the bus at the end of the school day.


The Board shall require students to conduct themselves on a bus and at the bus stop in a manner consistent with established standards of conduct.


In cases when students do not conduct themselves properly on a bus or at the bus stop, such instances are to be brought to the attention of the principal by the bus driver.


Students who become serious disciplinary problems on the school bus or at the bus stop may have their riding privileges suspended by the principal for up to ten days.  In such cases, the parents of the students involved shall determine another alternative to ensure that their children get to and from school safely.  Such alternative plan shall be shared with the school principal.
