Buses are the extension of
It is the cooperative mission of the Altoona and Eau Claire Area School Districts and Student Transit to provide safe transportation to and from the schools in each district. To facilitate this process, guidelines are in place to help each of us understand bus behavior guidelines and the disciplinary actions taken to enforce safety of our students. It is the responsibility of each student and their parent/guardian to read these guidelines and Disciplinary Action Plan.
Riding the bus is a privilege and not a right. If a student’s bus privileges are revoked due to violation of this policy, it remains the responsibility of the parent or guardian to transport the student to and from school.
Because student’s behavior on the school bus directly affects their safety and the safety of others, the following regulations apply at all times when students are riding the school bus, including field trips.
Possesion of the following will not be tolerated: cigarettes, chewing tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs, flame or spark producing devices (i.e. matches, lighters), and weapons (i.e. knives, chains, guns, laser pointers).
Violation of any of the above listed regulations will result in disciplinary action. Violations will not be tolerated. Students who do not follow these guidelines can be suspended from riding the school bus.
If actions result in the student or students needing to be removed from the school bus immediately, the Eau Claire Police Department will be called to assist in removing the student(s) from the bus. The student will be released to his/her parent or legal guardian by the Eau Claire Police Department.
Students are assigned to a specific bus to and from school. Parents must request in writing any exception from this rule. Students will not be allowed on or off the bus at a place other than their regular stop unless the bus driver is presented with a written parent request.
Parents and students are encouraged to contact student transit or the respective school official regarding any problems with school bus transportation. Students are encouraged to discuss issues with their bus driver, the principal, counselor, teacher, parent, or any appropriate adult. To ensure safe transportation for all involved, it is imperative that the students, parents, school officials, bus driver, and the bus company work cooperatively together to solve any problems that may arise.
