Local Operating Guidelines

Bus Behavior


Student behavior on the bus is an extension of the school day. Inappropriate behavior causes concerns for the safety and well-being of all persons on the bus. The following guidelines have been designed to ensure the safe transportation of all students on the bus.

  1. All rules will be posted on the bus.
  2. Each student will have a behavior report card listing the rules for behavior on the bus. This report card will be completed twice daily and returned to the TASK / SLC teacher.
  3. All guidelines pertaining to behavior on the bus as documented in the ARD will be followed by all staff.

Please be reminded that in regard to students who are being served in special education, transportation personnel make bus removal recommendations to the building principal and the building principal and/or an appropriate ARD committee make the final decisions concerning bus removals.
