Parents are requested to explain the importance of proper behavior on the bus. They are also expected to support disciplinary actions that are necessary to help their child modify his/her behavior.
The primary responsibility of the bus driver is to safely transport students to and from school. While transporting students, the driver is responsible for maintaining discipline on the bus. The driver will report behavior infractions to the proper school administrator using the District approved referral forms.
The school administrator will determine at what level an offense has occurred, based on any prior referral forms and/or disciplinary action. If the infraction is a violation of the law, the proper authorities will be notified. If the infraction results in property damage, restitution must be paid or a plan for restitution must be agreed upon before riding privileges will be reinstated.
Major Infractions: Assault, Fighting, Vandalism, Insubordination (Open defiance), Possession of a Weapon, Possession or use of Drugs, Alcohol, or Tobacco, Other.
