These rules are posted in a prominent place at the front of the bus.
 
  • Obey the bus driver.
  • Follow bus driver's first request.
  • Driver is authorized to assign seats.
  • No loud, rude, abusive, or profane language.

  • Keep hands and head inside the bus.
  • Never throw objects inside or out of the bus windows.

The principal of the student transported shall be informed by the bus driver of any serious dis- cipline problem and may be called upon to assist if necessary. A student may be denied the privilege of riding the bus if the principal determines that his behavior is such as to cause disruption on the bus, or if he disobeys state or local rules and regulations pertaining to student transportation (JCBD).
