5310.1 - Administrative Procedures for Transportation of Students


  1. Annually, at the beginning of each school year, the Human Resources Department will gather the names of all certified and classified district staff approved to transport students in small district owned vehicles.
  1. The district will obtain and keep on file a record of satisfactory driving annually before said employee will be allowed to transport students. A satisfactory driving record is defined as:

The record of satisfactory driving shall require the employee to have a current Nebraska driver’s license and a driving record that does not include any of the following offenses or circumstances:

  • Motor vehicle homicide;
  • Driving while under the influence of alcoholic liquor or drugs or refusal to submit to a chemical test or tests within the prior 10 years; or
  • Careless driving, reckless driving or willful reckless driving within the prior 10 years; or
  • Accumulation of 6 or more points against the employee’s driver’s license within the prior 4 years. In the event the employee has accumulated 3 to 5 points within the prior 4 years, the determination of whether the person has a record of satisfactory driving shall be made by the superintendent or superintendent’s designee based on the nature and proximity of the offense as it relates to safe transportation.

Any employee, who fails to report a violation of driving rules and regulations that results in revocation of their driver’s license, will be subject to a Class V misdemeanor and shall upon conviction, be removed from employment (Neb Statute 79-607).

  1. Criminal history records will be obtained on each driver initially upon employment and updated during the calendar year that coincides with the expiration of the individual’s motor vehicle operator’s license (excluding certificated staff).
