Bus Discipline

The Transportation Department has developed a point system for students who ride on South Bend Community Schools' buses.  Bus drivers assign points to students who misbehave on a school bus.

Please know, the South Bend Community School Corporation makes use of video recording cameras on some or all of our school buses.  Video recordings are considered "educational records" and board policy strictly governs the access and use of any video recordings made.

Bus riding is a privilege.  Please help your child understand the importance of their behavior and the impact on safety.
