Student Conduct on Buses
Safety is of prime importance for our students as we transport them to and from school and for school sponsored activities. Safety requires the cooperation of students, parents/guardians and school personnel. Parents/guardians should review and discuss school bus rules with their child/ children in an effort to help them understand and assume responsibility for good school bus conduct.
- Failure to abide by the School Bus Safety Guidelines may result in school personnel issuing one or more of the following consequences
- Verbal warning.
- Change in seat assignment (at discretion of the Bus Driver or other Wilson School District staff) .
- Written School Bus Conduct Report.
- Written notification from the school vehicle driver to the building Principal/Designee and the parent/guardian.
- The school Principal/Designee determines which disciplinary step(s) will be taken in response to the report.
- Parent/Guardian cooperation is greatly appreciated in addressing student behavioral issues that occur on Wilson School District Vehicles.
Transportation Audio/Video Surveillance
- Please click here to review Board Policy 810.2 regarding Video/Audio Monitoring on School Buses
Audio/Video recorders may be placed on board school vehicles to be a deterrent against acts of misconduct, thus providing a safer environment for students, drivers, and the motoring public.
- District vehicles may be equipped with digital video recorders (DVRs) and cameras so problems can be pinpointed and appropriate disciplinary actions can be taken. Although DVRs and cameras will be in most buses--they may or may not be recording at any time individuals are on board the vehicle.
- Recorded audio/video recordings capturing misbehavior may be used at conferences with parents/guardians as evidence for disciplinary action.
- A video recording is not required to support a school bus conduct referral written by any district employee.
Students are charged with the responsibility of conduct that will result in safe transportation, respect for school personnel and respect for other students. Failure to abide by the school bus rules, show proper respect to others, and comply with requests of school personnel may result in a student being issued a School Bus Conduct Report and subsequent suspension or denial of bus transportation.
