School Bus Rules & Consequences



The Bradford Area School District’s student transportation goal is to provide a safe and pleasant ride to and from school. We have developed the following student management procedures to ensure our goal is accomplished. Every student rider should familiarize themselves with these instructions as they will be consistently enforced on every bus. The consequences will accumulate until the end of the school year and will start over at the beginning of each school year.
