You say your daughter was verbally harassed on the bus. Was the incident witnessed by others? Adults or students? Has a similar event happened before? Is there a camera on the bus?

We don’t know how the school handled the situation or why you are dissatisfied. There are no one-size-fits all rules in handling these situations.

My grandaughter is in PreK – she rides and ESE bus to and from school. She is developmentally delayed and has communication issues. We were informed by the school 2 days after the event occurred that she was moved to the back of the bus where she was punched and hit by a non ESE sibling who is older, had toys thrown at her while seat belted in her seat. The aid was a substitute – thought she lost her cell phone so neglected to ensure the safety of my grand daughter. The school district reviewed the video for a different issue and saw what occurred. They suspended the student and fired the aid. They will not let us view the video. I and the parents requested to see the video and get a copy. We were told that we could not view it because of privacy issues – other children on the bus.
