Student Conduct on School Buses
While the law requires the school district to furnish transportation, it does not relieve parents of students 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.
Upon boarding the school bus, the child becomes the responsibility of the school district. Such responsibility will end when the child is delivered to the regular bus stop at the close of the school day.
In view of the fact that a bus is an extension of the classroom, the Board requires students to conduct themselves in the bus in a manner consistent with established standards for classroom behavior. Uniform disciplinary procedures will be developed by the Building Principals and the Transportation Supervisor.
Children who become a serious disciplinary problem on the school bus may have their riding privileges suspended by the principal. In such cases, the parents/guardians of the children involved will be responsible for seeing that their children get to and from school safely.
