2 points in a 12-month period

3 points in a 24-month period

4 points in a 36-month period

4. The district reserves the right to refuse an employee authorization to operate a district vehicle if the individual is determined to be a negligent operator in accordance with No. 3 above or fails to maintain a valid California Class A, B or C driver's license.

5.The Transportation Office shall maintain a list of approve employees who are authorized to operate district vehicles.

6.A "district vehicle" is defined as "a motor vehicle owned by the district used for the purpose of moving or propelling any person or property upon a highway, and not to exceed more than 10 passengers including the driver, no matter what size the vehicle is." If more than 10 passengers are to be carried, they must be in a school bus or a student pupil activity bus as defined in the Vehicle Code.
