Time is provided every few weeks for classes to separate into groups based on each bus community. For example, all students that ride bus #1 meet together, etc. Community members are involved in the meeting and include teachers, school crossing guards, and bus drivers. The Responsive Classroom ideology promotes shared knowledge and ownership of personal behavior, which is why it is important for all community members to partake in the bus community meetings. Students and community members will work together with the shared goal of improving the outcome of respectful behaviors while riding the school bus.
