Student Conduct on School Buses

In the interest of the safety and welfare of school bus passengers, the Board desires the superintendent and designees to establish and enforce strict school bus discipline and safety regulations. Students who do not conform to all regulations and directives concerning discipline, safety, and conduct, or whose behavior could be detrimental to the safety or welfare of others or the safe operation of the bus, may have their bus riding privileges  suspended or revoked in accordance with this policy and applicable regulations.

This policy and applicable regulations shall not be limited in their application to bus riding privileges alone, but shall also extend to all District provided or supervised transportation.  Disorderly conduct by students at bus stops shall be reported and acted upon in the same manner as misconduct on buses.

Audiovisual recording devices may be installed and used in school buses. In the event such devices are used, tapes shall not be released to anyone outside of the District, except as authorized or required by law.

Nothing contained in this policy and applicable regulations shall preclude the imposition of other disciplinary measures as appropriate, including suspension or expulsion from school in accordance with other District policies and procedures.
