Transportation (District Policy)

The Board furnishes transportation in compliance with State law. This fact does not relieve parents of students from the responsibility of supervision until such time as the student boards the bus and after the student leaves the bus at the end of the school day. Page 30
Students on a bus are under the authority of, and directly responsible to, the bus driver. The driver has the authority to enforce the established regulations for bus conduct. Disorderly conduct or refusal to submit to the authority of the driver is sufficient reason for refusing transportation services or suspending transportation services to any student once proper procedures are followed.

The Board authorizes the Superintendent or other administrators to suspend a student from school bus riding privileges for a period not to exceed one school year. The only due process required is the student must receive notice of an intended bus riding suspension and an opportunity to appear before the Superintendent or other administrator before the suspension is imposed.

The complete student transportation handbook is available on the district website.

Transportation-(Furry Elementary School’s Procedure)

Students have the privilege of using the transportation provided by the school district.  A student, who fails to maintain appropriate behavior while waiting for the bus, walking to or from the bus stop, or riding the bus, may lose this privilege.  No food or drink may be consumed on the bus.  All students must stay seated while riding the bus.  Shouting, screaming, and general unruly behavior will not be tolerated and may result in disciplinary action.

Students are assigned to a specific bus.  Students are not permitted to ride other buses.

The Perkins Local School District complies with state statutes regarding the transportation of pupils to and from school (O.R.C. 3327).  Boards of Education are charged by the Ohio Revised Code to provide transportation to pupils living in the district.  The Perkins Board of Education transports K–12 students.
