Pupils transported in a school bus shall be under the authority of, and responsible to, the driver of the bus. The state law gives the school bus driver full responsibility for the safety and conduct of students on the school bus. Those laws also state that students riding the bus are to refrain from disorderly conduct which may distract the driver and endanger the safety of all. Infractions of bus rules and regulations may result in the denial of transportation. These rules and regulations have been distributed to all students and their parent(s)/guardian(s). (Refer to Title 5, Code of Regulations section 14103).

When a pupil is denied bus transportation, it is the responsibility of the parent(s)/guardian(s) to provide transportation to and from school. Also, if the behavior is considered to be detrimental to the safety and welfare of the passengers on the bus, the above process may be superseded and immediate removal of the student will be at the discretion of the Principal or Superintendent with immediate notification to parent(s)/guardian(s).

For each occurrence of unsatisfactory conduct, an incident report is to be filled out. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) will be notified of each incident. The actual discipline will be determined by the Principal or Superintendent.
