EEAEC - Student Conduct on School Buses

Students using District transportation must understand that they are under the jurisdiction of
the school from the time they board the bus until they exit the bus.

Students transported in a school bus shall be under the authority of the Kearsarge Regional
School District and under the control of the bus driver, a legal representative of the School
Board. Disorderly conduct or refusal to submit to the authority of the driver shall be sufficient
reason for a student to be denied the privilege of transportation in accordance with the
procedures of the Kearsarge Regional School District. These infractions of behavior while on the school bus will result in administrative action at the school level.

The driver of the bus shall be held responsible for maintaining orderly conduct of the students
transported. Each driver has the support of the Kearsarge Regional School District in
maintaining positive behavior on the school bus.

The Superintendent of Schools will designate the building Principal and/or Assistant Principal
as the school officials having authority to apply appropriate administrative action for student
infraction(s) of safe school bus conduct and behavior.

The Superintendent of Schools or his/her designee will develop rules and regulations for
conduct on buses and provide them to the parent/guardian and student.
