6.25 SUSPENSION OF BUS RIDING/TRANSPORTATION PRIVILEGES
The Board furnishes transportation in compliance with Ohio law.  This fact does not relieve parents of students from the responsibility of supervision until such time as the student boards the bus and after the student leaves the bus at the end of the school day.

Students on a bus are under the authority of, and directly responsible to, the bus driver.  The driver has the authority to enforce the established regulations for bus conduct.  When Board vehicles are used for field trips and other school activities, the teacher, coach, advisor, or other employee shall be responsible for student discipline.  Disorderly conduct, refusal to submit to the authority of the driver or other employee, or any other violation of the Code of Student Conduct, is sufficient reason for refusing transportation services or suspending transportation services to any student once proper due process procedures have been followed.

This policy regarding bus riding privileges shall be posted in a central location in each school building and made available to students upon request.

Procedure

The Board authorizes the Superintendent, principal, or assistant principal to suspend a student from school bus riding privileges only for a period of up to one school year for a violation of this policy or the Student Code of Conduct.  The only due process required is notice to the student of an intended bus riding suspension and an opportunity to appear before the administrator considering the suspension before it happens.  The administrator’s decision shall be final, and the student shall not be entitled to further notice, hearing, or appeal rights.

When discipline problems with individual students arise, the following guidelines apply:

A.        If possible, the driver should resolve the problem.

B.         When the driver is unable to resolve the problem, he/she should report it to the transportation supervisor.  The transportation supervisor and driver, if necessary, will confer with the principal or assistant principal.  Any discipline is imposed by the principal or assistant principal of the school.

C.        Problems which cannot be resolved by measures specified shall be referred to the Superintendent.
