5312 – Student Conduct On School Buses

The Grand Island Public Schools expects students to conduct themselves on the bus in a manner consistent with the established standards of classroom behavior. The privilege of district provided transportation is conditional upon reasonable behavior by the student. Rules of conduct will be provided to students riding the bus.

In cases when a student does not conduct him or herself properly on the bus, such instances are to be brought to the attention of the building principal by the bus driver. Students who become a serious disciplinary problem on transportation provided by the school district may have their riding privileges suspended by the principal. In such cases, the parents involved become responsible for seeing that their students get to and from school safely, or to and from the appropriate activity. Parents/guardians will be informed of their right to appeal disciplinary decisions.
