[Tort Liability and School Transportation.]
Franke, Allyn J.
School districts, school employees, bus companies contracted by districts, and bus company employees could be involved in court litigation over student injury and student civil rights related to school bus transportation. Civil rights insurance should be added to general liability insurance and motor vehicle liability insurance. Students must be accorded due process in disciplinary proceedings and school districts must recognize potential liability situations and must notify their insurance carrier. To provide maximum protection, the school board and the bus company must keep student disruptive activity to a minimum, and it must be firmly dealt with. Proof to support the ousting of a student from riding the school bus must be substantial and well documented. (MLF)
