Student Conduct on Buses: JICC
Updated

The privilege of riding a school bus is contingent upon a student's good behavior and observance of the student code of conduct and established regulations for student conduct both at bus stops and on board buses. This privilege does not extend to parent/guardian except in extreme circumstances and with prior approval of the Director of Transportation.

The driver of a school bus shall be responsible for the safety of the students on his/her bus, as well as maintaining order, both during the ride and while students are entering or leaving the vehicle. Therefore, it is the bus driver's duty to notify the supervisor of transportation and the principal of the school involved if any student persists in violating the established rules of conduct.

The principal may withhold from the student the privilege of riding the school bus in the event the student violates the student conduct code or the established regulations for student conduct. The student also may be denied admission to school, suspended or expelled, in accordance with established policies including discipline of habitually disruptive students, for flagrant violation of school bus rider conduct regulations or conduct detrimental to the safe operation of the bus.
