School Bus Conduct

The parents or guardians of students have the responsibility of supervision until such time as the student boards the bus in the morning and after the student leaves the bus at the end of the day. The school has the authority to discipline a student for any misconduct occurring on the way to or from school. Once the student boards the bus, the student is expected to conduct him/herself on the bus in a manner consistent with the established standards for classroom behavior. 

Students who do not conduct themselves properly on a bus shall be brought to the attention of the principal by the bus driver. A student who cannot conduct him/herself properly on a bus may have riding privileges suspended. In such a case, the parent or guardian of the student involved shall be responsible for transporting the student to and from school. In cases of bus vandalism, the student and the parent/guardian shall be held responsible.

Students are prohibited from any and all acts of physical violence, bullying, physical assault of other persons on the school bus, verbal assault of other persons on the school bus, disrespectful conduct toward the school bus driver or other persons on the school bus, and any other unruly behavior.

Students are prohibited from using any electronic devices during the operation of a school bus, including but not limited to cell phones; pagers; radios, tape or compact disc players; or any other electronic device in a manner that might interfere with the school bus communications equipment or the school bus driver's operation of the school bus.

Students are also prohibited from using mirrors, lasers, flash cameras, or any other lights or reflective devices in a manner that might interfere with the school bus driver's operation of the school bus. (See Policy JCD - Student Conduct)
All students, grades K-12, shall be instructed annually in emergency evacuation and safe riding practices on school buses. The Director of Transportation shall work with school principals and bus drivers to ensure that this is accomplished.
