Students who break the rules while riding school buses next year will face standard disciplinary procedures if the Washington County Board of Education adopts new guidelines.
Until now, each school has dealt with such discipline on its own, said Transportation Director Chris Carter. The new guidelines will make punishment consistent, he said.
The list was developed by Carter and a committee of drivers and sent to several principals for comment.
A draft was given to the School Board on Tuesday.
If it is approved, parents will receive a letter asking them to review the list and sign and return an attached form.
The list doesn't change rules students are already expected to follow, such as "remain seated" and "do not damage any part of the bus."
