Riding the school bus is a privilege. This privilege can be, and will be, revoked when serious misconduct occurs or when minor infractions occur repeatedly. Refusal of the District to provide transportation under these conditions does not excuse parents from their responsibility of having their children in school.
Student may receive disciplinary consequences that can include bus or school suspension. Discipline can be administered for any student who violates the provisions of the Education Code on the bus, on the way to or from school or at the bus stop.
Title 5 Cal. Section 14203 of the State law reads: Pupils transported in a school bus shall be under the authority of, and responsible to, the driver of the bus. The driver is responsible for the orderly conduct of the pupils when they are on the bus or being escorted across a street, highway or road. Continued misconduct or persistent refusal to submit to the authority of the driver shall be sufficient reason for a pupil to be denied transportation in accordance with the regulations of the governing Board of Education.
