Peaceful School Bus Program
Get K-12 students on board with peaceful, positive behavior
The Peaceful School Bus Program works as a stand-alone program or as an enhancement to a comprehensive violence prevention program, such as the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program.
Teachers, administrators, parents, and students take part in school bus route group meetings. At these meetings the students
- Take part in team-building exercises
- Develop mentoring relationships by pairing older students with younger students on the bus
- Talk about bullying - and what behavior is and is not acceptable
- Get to personally know their driver, who is present at the meetings

What Customers are Saying about Peaceful School Bus
Mary Lib Morgan, CPP-ATOD
Chesterfield County Public Schools , January 26, 2010
"I just wanted you to know that two of our seven Olweus schools are implementing Peaceful School Bus and love it!! I observed a bus route meeting last week and was so excited to see student leadership from the older kids, kind behavior, and kids engaged in identifying the bus behaviors that worry them, then providing suggested solutions. The school counselor guided the group of over 40 students to develop three simple rules. Kids were happy as they departed and reports from teachers, administrators, and bus drivers are incredibly positive.
What a great addition to the Olweus program PSB is becoming in our district. I'm writing a grant this weekend in hopes of expanding the effort! All the schools want in and it is easy to see why.
Thanks so much for your wonderful contribution to safe schools, happier students, delighted bus drivers, and more peaceful buses!"
