Reducing School Bus Violence: The Salem, Oregon, Warning/Suspension System. Technical Assistance Bulletin 5.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
In its successful program to prevent and control violence, vandalism and misbehavior by students on school buses, the Salem (Oregon) school administration utilizes a four-step reporting and followup process. Should an incident occur, the first step is mailing of a misconduct notice to parents. This notice is followed by a warning letter. If misbehavior is serious or continuous, a conference may be held between administration officials and parents or guardians. The final step for serious or repeated offenses is suspension of the student's transportation privileges, with right to appeal. A full-time Transportation Pupil Conduct Supervisor coordinates the program for the approximately 9,000 students who are transported daily to and from Salem's schools. (Author)
