In an effort to spotlight RUSD bus riders who exhibit exceptional behavior and conscientious conduct towards district safety policies, Transportation Services is honoring one route and their students for outstanding ridership each month. Part of our student’s educational experience includes learning the value of teamwork. This program will provide an opportunity for the bus driver and students to create a team while being transported to and from school.
All students in the district who ride the bus are eligible for Bus Riders of the Month. The bus driver will nominate their students by route and by school site. Only one nomination can be made per bus driver. When a driver submits a nomination, they are actually nominating ALL of the students that ride on that specific run/school. Only ONE busload of students will receive a nomination from the bus driver per month.
