Keeping Children Safe In and Around the School Bus

Teaching children bus safety leads to more awareness and less likelihood of accidents happening. Click here for a number of quick tips to know and share with children who will be riding the bus to and from school.

Video Cameras

Video cameras (with audio) are utilized on most CCISD School Buses. Students videoing on bus for ANY reason is in violation of District and Transportation Rules. School or law enforcement personnel may use this information as safety training material and/or evidence of bus safety rule violations.

Safe Seating Standards

School buses are designed for the safety of students. A major design factor is the compartment formed by each seat, which protects the students sitting on that bench seat. In order for this compartmentalization to work properly, proper seating is required. While seated, each student should face forward; the student torso should be facing forward at all times, the student’s back should be flat against the back of the seat and the student’s bottom should be flat on the seat. (sitting straight back, upright against the seat.) Both feet and legs should be kept in front of their body.

Tips from the Texas Department of Transportation

Texas School Bus Law

Stop for flashing red lights on a school bus, regardless of which direction you're headed.
Continue your trip once the bus has moved, the flashing lights stop flashing or the bus driver signals it's okay to pass.
Violations can lead to a $1,000 fine.

Safety Tips for Motorists

Obey the posted speed limit.
Fines double in school zones.
Keep an eye on children gathered at bus stops.
Watch for children who might dart across the street to catch the bus.

Tips for Students

Respect your school bus driver and follow these rules:
Stand far back when you are waiting for the bus.
Sit still so the driver can pay attention to the road.
Look both ways if you have to cross the street after getting off the bus, or wait for the driver to signal it's safe to cross the street.
