Transportation (Bus) Discipline

GoldStar Transit - Discipline

Should a student’s behavior require more than verbal communication from the driver, the following formal corrective action procedures will be used:

  • 1st Offense: Parent/Guardian contacted to inform of behavioral issue.
  • 2nd Offense: Safety Report issued; parent/guardian contacted, and district personnel.
  • 3rd Offense: Safety Report issued; parent/guardian contacted, and district personnel. Loss of bus service for up to 15 days (Elementary students), or up to 30 days (Middle & High School students).
  • 4th Offense: Safety Report issued; copy sent to parent/guardian contacted, and district personnel.. Potential loss of bus service for remainder of school year.

If a student is caught fighting or brings a weapon on the bus, an immediate loss of bus privileges will be issued, parents/guardians contacted, and district notified. 

No ineligible or guest riders are allowed. If a guest or ineligible rider is discovered, the parents/guardians will be notified and corrective action will be taken.

The purpose of these procedures is to provide fair warning and, in some cases, the opportunity to correct behavior rather than punish. However, misconduct will be punished in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct; the privilege to ride in a school bus, may be suspended or revoked.

Neither Burleson ISD, the bus driver, nor GoldStar Transit is responsible for lost or left behind articles. Everyone who is eligible for bus service has the right to have a safe ride to and from school. Please be courteous to the driver and other riders. If a problem does arise, please feel free to call GoldStar Transit at 817-245-1180.
