School Buses

Who handles student safety at school bus stops?
Parents are responsible for student safety at school bus stops. Problems at school bus stops may also be referred to the local law enforcement agency.

Who is responsible for seeing that my child is safe to and from the bus stop and while at the bus stop?
Parents are responsible for their child's safety and well-being on the way to and from the bus stops and while at the bus stops. Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional information for school bus transportation. Problems at the bus stop may also be referred to the local law enforcement agency.

When and why are school buses inspected?
Louisiana state law requires that all school buses undergo routine maintenance inspections twice a year. This is done to ensure that buses are safe for transporting students.

My child's bus is over-crowded. Can some children be placed on another bus?
School bus sizes are identified in terms of passenger capacity. A regular school bus has a 65-passenger capability with student specified to sit three to a seat. High school students are allowed to ride two per seat. A full bus, especially with middle and high school students, may seem crowded, but it will not be over-capacity, the routes will be adjusted to relieve overcrowding.
