Bad behavior on Youngstown school buses won’t be tolerated


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.
