Students on a bus or other authorized Board transportation vehicles are under the authority of and directly responsible to the vehicle driver. The driver has the authority to enforce the established regulations for vehicle conduct. Disorderly conduct or refusal to submit to the authority of the driver may be sufficient reason for refusing transportation service to any student.
A student may be suspended from vehicle riding privileges for all or part of a school year for any violation of established regulations for school vehicle conduct and/or for conduct occurring on the vehicle in violation of the Code of Student Conduct.
Before a suspension from vehicle riding privileges is imposed, the principal or site administrator will provide a student with notice of an intended suspension. Disciplinary suspension periods will be commensurate with the infraction(s) committed as determined by the Code of Student Conduct.
Any additional procedures regarding conduct on school vehicles as well as general information about the school transportation program will be made available to all parents and students.
