Bus riding is a privilege, not a right. Inappropriate conduct at bus stops, on buses, or in the process of boarding or disembarking from a bus may result in the denial of bus-riding privileges. When school bus rules are consistently violated and cause danger to the students or drivers, the student may be denied bus-riding privileges from all buses for an entire school year.
