Riding a school bus is a privilege, not a right. The student who persists in misbehaving on school buses jeopardizes the safety of everyone on the bus and may lose the privilege of riding the bus.

The bus driver is responsible for maintaining discipline on the bus and in this capacity has the authority to assign seats and to make other reasonable demands of students. Any necessary discipline will be administered by a principal. Bus drivers may deliver a misbehaving student to a school principal or to the police before finishing the route in extreme circumstances. Once privileges are lost, that student cannot ride any bus for the duration of the suspension. Students will only be put off the bus at the bus stop or at school.
