5057.03 | Suspension of Bus Privileges

The bus driver will not exclude a student from the bus as it goes to or from school unless an emergency endangering the safety of the other children demands immediate exclusion of the violator. In all cases, except emergencies, exclusion will come after the parent has been properly notified by the principal as provided in Section 8015.20 and 8015.30.

The compulsory attendance laws require attendance of all minors under sixteen years of age. Any student whose bus privileges are suspended must continue his or her attendance in school and responsibility for student transportation lies with the parent or guardian. Any absences resulting from suspension of bus privileges will be considered as truancy and treated as such. Parents should report bus problems to the principal of the schools. (3-26-02)
