Rules of conduct for bus riders have been established by the Superintendent of Schools and are distributed to all students before or during the first week of school each year.
Students who violate rules of conduct for bus riders may be suspended from bus riding privileges for a maximum of five days for any one offense. Repeated or flagrant violators may be suspended for periods of time longer than five days. Riding the bus is a privilege and may be withdrawn if the student does not comply with the District's rules and regulations.
Students riding school buses are expected to conform to the rules of conduct in order to permit the bus driver to transport his/her passengers safely.
Suspension from bus riding privileges up to five days may be given by building principals. Suspension for periods of time greater than five days may be given only by the Superintendent of Schools. Such long-term suspensions will be given only after a conference with the parent/guardian of the student.
Students suspended from bus riding privileges are required to continue to be in attendance in school.
The Superintendent of Schools has developed guidelines for school bus drivers for disciplining students and procedures for reporting incidents to the appropriate school officials.
