Peaceful School Bus ProgramIn the fall of 2008, the district began implementing the Peaceful School Bus Program in its 8 elementary schools to enhance the work already being done through the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. The Peaceful School Bus Program aims to change the social dynamics on the school bus by building strong, positive relationships among students (and the bus driver) and teaching students to take responsibility for their "bus route group" and what happens on the bus.
The Peaceful School Bus Program consists of a series of meetings for each bus route group which include the bus driver for the route. These meetings teach concepts and skills, and also foster a sense of identify and community among bus route group members.
