SCHOOL BUS DISCIPLINE PROCEDURES
If a student breaks the rules on the bus, the driver will strive to resolve the problem as printed on the “Rules on the Bus.” If the driver cannot obtain cooperation from the student, he/she will file a discipline report with the principal. The principal will proceed as follows:
•FIRST REPORT: Telephone conversation and/or written notification will be made to student and parent/guardian. Student may be required to write a plan on how he/she will improve bus behavior.
•SECOND REPORT: Telephone conversation and/or written notification will be made to student and parent/guardian. One (1) to three (3) day suspension of bus privileges beginning the next school day after parent notification.
•THIRD REPORT: Telephone conversation and/or written notification will be made to student and parent/guardian. Five days suspension of bus privileges beginning with the next school day after notification. Student and parent/guardian are required to meet with the principal before student is allowed back on the bus. Bus driver and/or a representative of the bus company may be asked to attend this meeting. A plan to improve bus behavior will be the main concern and definition of what will happen if behavior does not improve.
•RECURRING REPORTS: If student continues to receive discipline reports, the principal will work with parent/guardian to determine an appropriate course of action with the student. This may involve a behavior management plan, a longer suspension period or even a suspension for the balance of the school year.
•SEVERE CLAUSE: Any act that is dangerous or destructive can result in immediate suspension of bus privileges. Students will be required to pay for any damages.
•Elementary students will be reinstated to step one (first report) of this procedure if they have no discipline reports filed for 60 days. A new school year always begins with a clean slate.
•Students assigned to ride a bus to and from Central or to and from the High School must do so unless the school receives parent written notification allowing walking, bike riding, etc.
