    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    It is okay to touch a student when providing First Aid for a cut, scrape, or scuff. This is because in such situations, immediate medical attention or assistance may be required, and physical contact may be necessary to properly assess and treat the injury. However, touching a student to congratulate them or physically moving them into a seat or out of an aisle may not be appropriate without their consent or without following proper guidelines and protocols.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      It depends on how serious the offense is

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Raising one's voice at a student for failing to obey bus rules is not okay. It is important for drivers to maintain a calm and respectful environment on the bus. Raising one's voice can escalate the situation and create unnecessary tension. Instead, the driver should address the issue calmly and assertively, reminding the student of the rules and consequences.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which sample dialog below will earn the driver the most cooperation from the student?

    • A.

      "[Student's name], will you please move up to this seat right here?"

    • B.

      "[Student's name], you have 10 seconds to get into your assigned seat or your off the bus."

    • C.

      "[Student's name], turn around and quit yelling or I'll have your ass in an assigned seat until the end of the year!"

    Correct Answer
    A. "[Student's name], will you please move up to this seat right here?"
    Explanation
    Being friendly and polite is usually the best policy when dealing with 5th - 12th graders. This makes the student feel like the move is not punishment, but rather an inconvenience. Using profanity on the school bus is an absolute NO-NO!! Issuing a order, and telling the student there will be punishment if they don't obey is an okay way of managing discipline issues in 7th - 9th grades, but outside of that age group, it causes students to want to rebel and usually ends up escalating the situation. The only tried and proven method that has seen the most results, is being friendly, kind, and gentle. It appears to make all the difference.
