What to do when students act out

Expanding discipline policies to cover both transportation and campus life, providing crisis intervention training to staff and sharing relevant student information with the right personnel will help minimize student violence on the bus and in the classroom.

See something, do something

Student transportation contractor First Student Inc. conducts a yearly campaign called “See Something, Do Something,” based on a campaign created by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools and the National Association for Pupil Transportation.  

During the month of September, First Student drivers are given two handouts each week to help prevent bullying on the bus. In addition, posters with bullying facts are hung in the driver’s room. 

Fifty-two percent of school bus drivers believe bullying is a problem on their buses, according to the contractor.

The campaign aims to help drivers and attendants understand how to create an environment of trust and understanding on their school buses, as well as:

• Establish and enforce bus safety rules
• Understand the signs of bullying and how to intervene
• Understand the additional challenges students with special needs face
• Empower children to report if they are being bullied or see bullying on the bus or at school
• Understand the importance of reporting all bullying incidents to management and school district customers
