Disciplinary Actions

We are concerned about safety and the well being of all Lakeland students. Riders who violate the School Bus Safety Rules may have their school bus privileges suspended. Because we seek to assure uniform treatment of our students, the following Schedule of Disciplinary Actions will be followed throughout the district.
1st Offense

Parent notified of violation

2nd Offense

Conference with parent, student, principal, transportation office and bus driver. Student placed on probation.

3rd Offense

Parent notified; bus privileges suspended for five (5) school days.

4th Offense

Parent notified; bus privileges suspended for ten (10) school days.

5th Offense

Parent notified; bus privileges suspended for twenty (20) school days.

6th Offense Parent notified; bus privileges revoked for the remainder of the school year.


Note:
 If an offense, even the first, constitutes a serious danger to any individual, then a conference shall be required as outlined under 2nd offense above, and bus privileges may be suspended immediately for a minimum of five (5) days. Any offense may be referred to the superintendent for a Superintendent's hearing.

Zero Tolerance For Violence Policy
It is the policy of the Board of Education that violence in any form will not be tolerated in the School District, including in all school buildings, grounds and facilities, on school buses, and at all school activities and events, whether on campus or off campus.
