Student Conduct on Buses

(Back to Faulkton Area School Policies)

When a student is riding, boarding, or leaving the school bus, the bus driver has supervisory control over the student.  Because the bus is an extension of the classroom, the Board requires students to conduct themselves in a bus in a manner consistent with established standards for classroom behavior.                                         

In cases when a student does not conduct himself/herself properly on a bus, the bus driver will report the incident to the principal and/or transportation director.  The principal will inform the parents of the misconduct and request their cooperation in checking the student’s behavior.

Students who become a serious disciplinary problem on the school bus may have their riding privileges suspended by the principal and transportation director.  In such cases, the parents of the student involved will be responsible for their child’s transportation to and from school.
