Addressing behavioral issues in school buses requires a multi-faceted approach.  Educating students is as important as a Code of Conduct and supportive disciplinary measures.   Introducing the Why's behind the Code of Conduct is more effective;  providing students with a greater understanding of the impact of their actions and taking responsibility for keeping themselves and their friends safe.   This topic extends to public transportation as well as closed home to school bus services.  Holding a school assembly on this subject and involving, bus drivers, emergency first responders and bullying experts give reason to what is being asked.  Involving students in a role play story is powerful and memorable, especially for prep school age children.  Statistically this is the age of students who can be most challenging on the school bus.  I wonder how many schools (besides the ones I've worked with) take this approach?
