Bus Conduct


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

Video cameras may be used on school buses to monitor student behavior while traveling to and from school and school activities. It is believed 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.

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