In cases when a student misbehaves consistently or flagrantly on a bus, the driver may recommend suspension of transportation privileges for the student to school authorities.
According to law, parents are ultimately responsible for their children’s safe transport to and from school. Unless there is a legal reason for the absence, children must attend school, whether or not their bus privileges have been suspended by school authorities.
