Lafayette Parish School System Lafayette Parish School System

The Lafayette Parish School Board will consider minor changes to the system's bus discipline policy at its meeting Wednesday.

The changes were recommended by the Bus Discipline Committee. You can read the full policies, which include the proposed changes, below. 

These are the recommended changes:

  • At the elementary, middle and high schools, throwing items out of the bus will be considered a major disruption. It is currently considered a minor disruption.
  • Elementary schools currently classify Infraction 17, “violates traffic and safety regulations” as a level 1 infraction. The committee recommends classifying Infraction 17 as a level 2 infraction in elementary schools. Middle and high schools already classify Infraction 17 as a level 2 infraction.
  • The current Student/Parent Handbook does not provide specific consequences for Level 1 bus-related infractions. The proposed revisions will include specific consequences for Level 1 bus-related infractions for elementary, middle, and high schools.
  • Communication by the bus driver and school administration is required for all disciplinary actions.
