Bus Procedures are as follows:
Drivers are provided with rosters for their routes. Drivers on all three runs will check passes. If someone does not have a pass, they will check the roster to see if it is purchased but not carried. If it was purchased and lost, we will require the family to purchase a replacement pass but allow the student to ride. If it has not been purchased, the driver will report the student to Central Office where a Central Office staff member will contact the family to see if this is an oversight or are they not following the rules. If it is an oversight, the family will be invoiced for a pass. If the family refuses to pay the invoice, we will inform the family that the student will not be picked up the following day. The Transportation Coordinator will contact the driver and leave the child at the bus stop. If there is a continuing problem on the bus, we will have our Bus Pass Enforcement Aide ride in the morning on that particular bus.
The bus pass enforcement aide works at three different schools to ensure compliance. She also has the rosters for all of the buses. The drivers will also enforce and refer problems to the bus pass enforcement aide as needed. A similar procedure to the mornings will occur if a child does not have a pass except in this instance, we will leave the child at school.
