The Jordan-Elbridge Central School District furnishes transportation to those students whose disability or distance from the school make the service essential. Except as otherwise mandated in a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP), riding these buses is a privilege and may be withdrawn if the student does not comply with the rules and regulations set forth in this District. Students riding school buses are expected to conform to the rules of conduct in order to permit the bus driver to transport his or her passengers safely.
The Board of Education, the Superintendent or his designee has the authority to suspend the transportation privileges of children who are disorderly and insubordinate on buses. In these cases, the parents/guardians of the children involved become responsible for seeing that their children get to and from school safely.
Bus drivers shall be held responsible for reasonable and acceptable behavior of students while riding the school bus.
The Board directs the administration to establish rules and regulations for student conduct on buses, including applicable due process rights to be afforded students suspended from transportation privileges. These rules and regulations shall be promulgated to all concerned, including the non-public schools to which students are transported.
