Parents must realize that school bus transportation is a “privilege” not a “right.” Pupils who misbehave may be denied the privilege of riding on the bus since their misbehavior jeopardizes the safety of the entire bus load and could result in injury to others.
Students being transported are under the authority of the school bus driver and the Monona Grove School District.
Upon receipt of the “Bus Conduct Report,” the school principal will inform the parent or guardian and student of the offense and suspend the student for up to seven (7) days and recommend to the Director of Transportation that the student be suspended from the bus for up to the remainder of the school year.
