XI. Transportation Code
    A. The safety of all students is our primary concern. All school buses are “school property” and are subject to all rules set forth
    in the Bethlehem Central code of conduct. Each student has an individual responsibility to help ensure the safety of all students

    student is expected to listen to and obey all instructions from transportation personnel.
    B. Examples of bus misconduct include but are not limited to:
        1. Roughhousing at a bus stop.
        2. Bringing prohibited items onto a school bus. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to, skateboards, animals, flammable
        materials of any kind, medications that contain controlled substances and weapons of any kind.
        3. Making threatening gestures and/or comments.
        4. Disregarding the instructions of the bus driver.
        5. Swearing or using inappropriate language.
        6. Eating, drinking or smoking on a school bus.
        7. Damaging or vandalizing any part of a school bus.
        8. Fighting, pushing or shoving.
