Bus drivers have complete charge of students riding the bus and
will report misbehavior to the principal. The principal or assistant
principal is responsible for disciplining students for bus misbehavior.
To help maintain order on the bus, bus drivers have the authority to
assign a special seat on the bus to any student.
For the safety of all students who ride the bus, students are expected to obey the following rules:
If students violate any of these
rules, the principal or assistant principal may take disciplinary
action, including suspension from riding the bus for as many as ten (10)
days and suspension from school for as many as five (5) days. If bus
misbehavior is severe, a disciplinary hearing may be called and students
may be suspended or expelled from the bus or from school.
a student is found to have engaged in bullying, physical assault or
battery of a person on the bus, Georgia law requires the student's
parent/guardian to meet with school officials to develop a school bus
behavior contract for the student. If a student causes damage to a
school bus, the student will be suspended from the bus and/or from
school, and will be required to repay the cost of any damage to the bus.
on a school bus is among the most serious offenses committed by
students. Students who fight endanger themselves and everyone riding the
bus by causing the bus driver's attention to be diverted. Fighting on a
school bus may result in immediate suspension from the bus and/or from
school with no prior warning or prior disciplinary action being taken
and can result in detention by law enforcement personnel.
recorders are placed on school buses for the purpose of aiding
supervision. Video/audio recordings may be used as evidence that
misbehavior has taken place.
School administrators will follow the Discipline Plan as outlined in the Handbooks for Brantley County Schools.
