School Bus Policy

To order to insure the safety of everyone who rides the school bus, Vysehrad ISD has enacted rules and consequences for those students who refuse to act correctly and who jeopardize the safety of all individuals on the bus. This also ensures that everyone is aware of the rules for everyday and for field trips, sporting events, etc.

Removal from the School Bus: A bus driver may refer a student to the principal’s office to maintain effective discipline on the bus. The principal must employ additional discipline management techniques, as appropriate, which can include restricting or revoking a student’s bus riding privileges. To transport students safely, the vehicle operator must focus on driving and not be distracted by student misbehavior. Therefore, when appropriate disciplinary management techniques fail to improve student behavior or when specific misconduct warrants immediate removal, the principal/CBC may restrict or revoke a student’s transportation privileges, in accordance with law.

The rules regarding student behavior on the bus are the same as those in the classroom.

Discipline notices will be given for:


Moving around on the bus (changing seats)

Not being fully seated (kneeling, sitting on feet)

Feet in the aisle

Disrespect towards the bus drivers

Body parts out the window

Throwing things out the window


Any other inappropriate behavior (kicking, biting, hitting, spitting, etc.)

Frequent discipline notices may result in a bus suspension for 2 weeks.

Serious behavior problems will be referred to the Principal immediately.

Using ANY electronic devices, including but not limited to cell phones, Ipods, etc. is prohibited. If anyone is caught using an electronic device, the device will be confiscated. In order to get cell phones back, a $15.00 charge will be incurred.

In addition, students are not allowed to spray any colognes, deodorants or any aerosol products on the bus. Students with allergies, asthma may be adversely affected.
