Accident Reporting Procedures

School districts are required to report all school bus related traffic accidents, including activity buses to the School Transportation Unit (STU) within one week (7 calendar days) of any accident. Accidents involving activity vehicles (other than school buses) must be reported to the STU. Those accidents that result in injury must be reported to the STU immediately. A written report must be submitted with 7 calendar days. Other accidents involving any injury to students while walking to-and-from school must be reported to the STU immediately and a written report must be submitted within 7 calendar days.

Any accident involving a fatality, injury or mechanical failure must be reported immediately.

For additional information please contact Brenda MacFarlane at the School Transportation Unit.
