The STRIVE expectations apply while being transported. Students who violate the STRIVE expectations will be subject to progressive discipline as follows:
First Violation: Verbal or Written Warning
Second Violation: 1-5 days loss of transportation
Third Violation: 5-10 days loss of transportation
Fourth Violation: 10-20 days loss of transportation
Fifth Violation: Permanent loss of transportation
In cases of severe and/or persistent misconduct, transportation privileges may be revoked at any time prior to the fifth violation.
In addition to the STRIVE expectations, the following rules apply:
Bus Surveillance Systems
Surveillance systems on school buses are used to help determine misconduct and improve discipline, ensure the safety of students and bus drivers, and prevent vandalism. Therefore, surveillance systems are installed on all buses to monitor student behavior while traveling to and from school and school activities.
Surveillance may occur on any school bus. The contents of a recording may be a student record and, as such, may be used in student disciplinary proceedings or referred to local law enforcement, as appropriate. (MCOE Policy 5131.1)
