Bus transportation – the safest form of transportation – is provided for Gr. K-8 students in the Rocky River City Schools, based on each school’s transportation zone.
As required by the state of Ohio, every bus driver attends special school bus training before transporting any of our students. The training consists of 32 hours in the classroom and 24 hours behind the wheel. In total, every bus driver – including substitutes – spends at least 3 weeks to one month training to be a school bus driver. The school division’s training actually exceeds the state’s minimum.
Parents are encouraged to read the Bus Conduct Policy listed under Forms to the right as it clearly outlines the conduct for all students while riding a school bus. To ensure the safety of our students, parents should consider sharing “watch” responsibilities with a neighbor so your children have an adult overseeing safety at their bus stops. Parents are encouraged to remind their children of acceptable behavior on a school bus.
