Bad behavior on Youngstown school buses won’t be tolerated

Published: Fri, November 5, 2010 @ 2:42 p.m.


From fighting to just eating, Youngstown school officials say they won’t tolerate inappropriate behavior on the district’s buses.

Parents of students in the district will receive a “contract” next week detailing unacceptable conduct on buses, said Superintendent Wendy Webb.

“We won’t tolerate bad behavior,” she said Friday.

The rules include no fighting or verbal abuse, no eating or drinking on buses, misbehaving at the bus stop, no yelling or shouting on buses, and obeying the driver.

“We are determined to provide a safe environment for the students,” Webb said. “Parents need to tell their kids to sit down on the bus and behave. It’s a life-or-death matter. A real tragedy could happen.”

Because it’s a new program, parents will have time to sign and return the forms.

For once since, Wendy Webb has been in her position, this is a first I would have to say.."Good job" and for the kids who don't want to act right, well have their parents get up and take them to school and im sure they (students) will straighten up their act, then..and if they (students) aren't in school, then enforce the law- that parents are responsible for their children action, so parents must deal with the consequence (jail time for parents), nip this in the bud quickly before it really gets out of hand

The problem will be that when students start violating the agreement some scumbag lawyer looking to make a name for his/herself will get into the middle of it.

Could race be used if it serves the purpose, you tell me?

Since when do parents need to sign a contract to get their kids to behave? Rules are rules, either follow them or don't ride the bus. No need for contrats, especially since these parents more than likely don't even discipline their own kids.

Follow the AT&T class action case being heard by the Supreme court...depending on how the Court rules we could see the end of class action status...a good thing.

Schools all over the country have been making parents sign codes of conduct on riding the bus for over a decade.

Yea right, like the kids will listen. They always do what they want anyway and screw whoever gets in there way. Said it before and will say it again, kids today have no respect!
