Bus Conduct   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Bus transportation is a privilege extended only to students who display good conduct while preparing to ride, riding or leaving the bus. Continued disorderly conduct or persistent refusal to submit to the authority of the driver shall be sufficient reason for a student to be denied transportation.

The Superintendent or his/her designee shall establish regulations related to bus conduct, bus driver authority, and the suspension of riding privileges. The Board of Trustees shall make these rules available to parents/guardians and students. (5 CCR 14103)

(cf. 3540 - Transportation)

(cf. 3541.2 - Transportation for Students with Disabilities)

(cf. 3543 - Transportation Safety and Emergencies)

Video cameras may be used on school buses to monitor student behavior while traveling to and from school and school activities. The Board believes that such monitoring will deter misconduct and help to ensure the safety of students and staff. Students found to be in violation of the district's bus conduct rules shall be subject to discipline in accordance with district policy and regulations.

(cf. 3515.4 - Recovery for Property Loss or Damage)

(cf. 5144 - Discipline)

At the discretion of the Superintendent or his/her designee, school bus video recordings also may be used to resolve complaints by students and/or parents/guardians and to help employees maintain discipline.
