State Laws for School Buses

Please review the following state laws concerning driver and student crossing procedures.

North Carolina school districts will be using a standard crossing signal to help protect students when they need to cross the street to board the bus or after exiting the bus. The school bus driver will first hold their palm out indicating that students should WAIT before stepping into the roadway. After the driver has checked for safety, he or she will then give students a “thumbs up” indicating that the students should then check for traffic and then cross the street. The driver will indicate the direction to walk by pointing with his or her index finger.

Driver Handbook

Bus Driver Handbook

Please review the 2017-18 Bus Driver Handbook. Then, print and sign the Bus Driver Code and Agreement and the Bus Radio Guidelines.

The bus coordinator at each site is responsible for ensuring a signed copy of each agreement is on file for each driver. A copy of each agreement is to remain in each driver’s file on campus at all times.
