The safety record of buses and drivers is outstanding in the Riverview School District. The school bus drivers undergo an extensive training program prior to getting behind the wheel of a school bus and refresher training every year. This training helps to ensure that riding a school bus is the safest way to get to school. Riverview has 37 buses and covers 500,000 miles a year in their 3-tier transportation routes: high school, middle school, and elementary schools.

Bus Rules

Riverview Transportation Department is responsible for the safe transportation of students every day. It is a responsibility that requires the cooperation of the students in observing the safety rules enforced by the district. Students riding on the bus are expected to conform to behavior rules corresponding to classroom conduct regulations. Students are to:

  • Sit properly in their seats

  • Refrain from throwing objects

  • Keep hand to self

  • Be courteous to others

  • Obey the bus driver at all times

  • Promote bus cleanliness

  • Refrain from vandalism

 

The driver is in full charge of the bus and the students. The driver will report any problems to the Bus Discipline Officer for students who violate the rules on the bus. Each principal has the authority to dictate appropriate consequences or discipline for student misconduct, including loss of bus riding privileges. For the safety of all rides, the Board of Directors has authorized the installation of video cameras on district buses.

Students must only use their designated bus stop. A student must have written permission from their parent or guardian, subject to the principal's approval in writing, for any change in their assigned bus or bus stop.

The safety record of buses and drivers is outstanding in the Riverview School District. All buses are equipped with two-way radios, crossing arms, fire extinguishers, chains and/or sanders, and first-aid kits. Safety is the foremost concern of the bus drivers. Prior to leaving the bus garage, each driver performs a pre-trip safety check of the bus using district-established procedures that comply with the State Department of Transportation requirements.
