Rules for Riding the School Bus


The Southwestern Central School District supports the bus driver in charge of the bus, and as such, the bus driver’s instructions are to be obeyed by all students at all times.  Upon boarding the bus, the school day begins. The school bus is to be considered an extension of the classroom, and all rules and regulations enforced in school classrooms are in force for students while riding on school buses.  Student actions which have the potential of distracting the driver, or otherwise affect a safe and orderly environment on the bus are strictly prohibited and will result in consequences involving loss of riding privileges. Building Principals as well as the Superintendent are authorized to investigate charges and suspend riding privileges for those students who exhibit serious disciplinary problems on district school buses.  In the event that a student has behaved in a way that warrants the loss of riding privileges, the parent(s) or guardian(s) of the student involved will become responsible for seeing that their student gets to and from school safety.
