Appropriate behavior is critical to the safety of all persons on and off the school bus. The school bus is an extension of the school, and all rules and regulations pertaining to conduct on the school grounds apply to riding on school buses and waiting for the school bus. The bus driver has the legal authority and responsibility to enforce school bus rules and regulations. Students on board a school bus are directly responsible to the driver for their conduct and actions.
By State Law and Board Policy, students may be denied bus riding privileges when it is necessary in the interest of discipline and safety. Notification of such action will be communicated to the parent or guardian by the principal.
In cases of severe misconduct a student may be assigned a penalty more severe than provided for in the normal process.
