Altercation on Edmond school bus leads to changes for riders
Edmond police were called to assist a driver Thursday after students from Central Middle School were involved in an altercation on a school bus.
Parks-Schlepp said that bus will now have assigned seats. Buses do not typically have assigned seats, she said. Additionally, the principal of Central Middle School and transportation officials spoke to students who ride that bus on Friday to remind them that disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.
The full report on the incident is not complete, Parks-Schlepp said. Involved students could still face disciplinary action including suspension of bus-riding privileges.
“At this point, we have no plans to discipline the driver,” Parks-Schlepp said. “He did an exemplary job.”
There is no video of the incident available. Parks-Schlepp said the students were riding a substitute bus because their regular bus was out of service with a maintenance problem.
