Returned Checks

Bus Pass Cards

Students are expected to display their bus pass (or render a bus coupon) to the bus driver upon demand. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action and service disruptions as follows:

Elementary and middles school students who fail to display a valid bus pass in the mornings will be transported to school then immediately reported to the school principal. Students who fail to display a valid bus pass in the afternoons may be required to obtain a temporary bus pass from the school office before boarding the bus. Repeat offenders will not be permitted to board the bus.


Lost Bus Pass

There is a $5 fee to replace a lost, stolen or damaged bus pass. Free bus recipients will receive up to two free replacement bus passes then will be required to pay the $5 replacement fee.



Video Cameras and GPS Tracking

HIDOE is committed to ensuring your child's safety, health and well-being at all times. To that end, parents are advised that HIDOE utilizes video cameras and GPS tracking devices on all of its school bus vehicles statewide. Guidelines on the restricted use, application and retention of video surveillance files and vehicle tracking files can be obtained by contacting your local school bus transportation office.


Complaints

If you have a concern about your child's bus service, bus driver or route schedule, please contact your local district transportation office immediately.


Discipline

Students who misbehave on the bus pose a serious health and safety risk to all passengers and are therefore subject to disciplinary action by the school principal. When an incident occurs, the bus driver is required to report it to the school principal within two school days. The principal will conduct an investigation of the incident and notify you of the outcome. If your child is precluded from riding the bus due to disciplinary action, you will not receive a refund for the unused portion of the bus pass.
