Code No.: 702.9
STUDENT CONDUCT ON SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION
Policy: Students utilizing school transportation will conduct themselves in an orderly manner
fitting to their age level and maturity with mutual respect and consideration for the rights of the
school vehicle driver and the other passengers. Students who fail to behave in an orderly
manner will be subject to disciplinary measures.
The driver will have the authority to maintain order on the school vehicle. It is the
responsibility of the driver to report misconduct to the designated administrator.
The board supports the use of video cameras on school buses used for transportation to and
from school as well as for field trips, curricular or extracurricular events. The video cameras
will be used to monitor student behavior and may be used as evidence in a student disciplinary
proceeding. The videotapes are student records subject to school district confidentiality, board
policy and administrative regulations.
The District, in conjunction with the Director of Transportation and Transportation Conduct
Administrator will have the authority to suspend transportation privileges of the student or
impose other appropriate discipline due to repeat infractions and/or the severity of an
infraction. The Superintendent is informed prior to suspension of riding privileges.
The parents/guardians, after notification, may request a meeting. The meeting shall include
appropriate personnel, including but limited to the Director of Transportation and or the
Transportation Conduct Administrator, the Superintendent and may include the building
principal. The meeting shall be for the purpose of reviewing the nature of the violation and the
subsequent assigned discipline. It shall also be the purpose of the meeting to determine
solutions to the problem behavior.
It is the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the building principal, to
develop administrative regulations regarding student conduct and discipline when utilizing
school district transportation.
