The school bus is an extension of school itself. Transportation to and from school is a privilege and not a right, according to board policy.

Students shall be responsible for their behavior on the school bus. Misbehavior can result in the bus driver being distracted which could endanger the lives of everyone on the bus.

We ask for parents to explain the importance of proper behavior on the bus, and if needed, for them to support disciplinary action that may help their child change behavior.

The primary responsibility of the bus driver is to transport students safely.  While transporting students, the bus driver’s primary responsibility is student safety while also maintaining discipline on the bus.  

As such, the bus driver is in charge of the bus and the riders at all times and holds the same authority as a classroom teacher.
