5.16.P.1 Bus Safety Program

A.A.C. R17-9-104 states, with respect to the authority of bus drivers, "Passengers shall comply with all instructions given to them by a school bus driver.  A passenger or non-passenger who has boarded the school bus and refuses to comply with the school bus driver's instructions may be surrendered into the custody of a person who is authorized by the school to assume responsibility for the passenger or non-passenger."

Student behavior on a school bus should be the same as that in a well-ordered classroom with the exception that students are free to talk, but with no screaming or shouting.
