Michigan Bus Drivers, Parents, Teachers and Students Encouraged to Report School Bus Bullying

 

December 6, 2018

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette reminds all Michigan residents of the importance of school bus safety. Bullying and suicide remain top tip categories for OK2SAY – and school busses are no exception for bullying.

"The school bus can be a very vulnerable place for students," said Schuette. "This is why I encourage all bus drivers, parents, and teachers to be aware of the signs of bullying and know how to intervene in potentially dangerous situations and properly report the tip to OK2SAY."

Parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties can join forces to promote and improve high standards for school bus safety.
