The busing of students as provided by the Board of Education is a privilege for those who qualify.

The bus shall be considered an extension of the classroom and the Board requires that students conduct themselves while on the bus in a manner consistent with established standards for classroom behavior. The bus driver is in charge of the bus and students are expected to comply with his/her requests at all times. The driver has the authority and responsibility to maintain orderly behavior of students on the bus.

Cases of improper conduct shall be reported to the principal. Serious disciplinary problems may result in the suspension of riding privileges. In such cases, it shall become the responsibility of the parents of the students involved to see that their students get to and from school safely and on time. In addition to being suspended from the bus, students are subject to discipline up to and including expulsion for serious misconduct on school buses.
