2.8 School Bus 

2.8.1 school bus: A school bus is a motor vehicle used for the transportation of any school pupil at or below the 12th-grade level to or from a public or private school or school-related activity. A motor vehicle is not a school bus while on trips which involve the transportation exclusively of other passengers or exclusively for other purposes. A motor vehicle is a school bus only if it is externally identifiable by the following characteristics: 

1.) Its color is yellow

2.) The words “school bus" appear on the front and rear 

3.) Flashing red lights are located on the front and rear

4.) Lettering on both sides identifies the school or school district served, or the company operating the bus

Inclusions: 

Any automobile, bus, van, utility vehicle, truck or other vehicle which meets the above criteria 

Any such vehicle going to pick up, or returning from delivering school pupils 
Exclusions: 

o Any such vehicle while being used to transport non-school pupils such as senior citizens or migrant workers

2.8.2 school bus crash: A school bus crash is (1) a motor vehicle crash in which a school bus, with or without a pupil on board, is involved directly as a contact vehicle, or (2) a motor vehicle crash or an other-road-vehicle crash in which a school bus, with or without a pupil on board, is involved indirectly as a noncontact vehicle. 

Inclusions: 

A collision involving motor vehicle in-transport in which one or more school buses strike(s) or are (is) struck by another road vehicle (directly involved) 

A collision involving pedestrian in which a child approaching or leaving a school bus, stopped and with its red lights flashing, is struck and injured by a motor vehicle (School bus indirectly involved)

A collision crash or noncollision crash involving a motor vehicle in-transport passing a school bus, stopped and with its red lights flashing (School bus is a noncontact vehicle indirectly involved)

A collision crash in which a child approaching or leaving a school bus, stopped and with its red lights flashing, is struck and injured by a pedalcycle (School bus indirectly involved) 

Exclusions: 

o A collision crash or noncollision crash involving a motor vehicle which is normally used as a school bus, but is carrying only senior citizens when the collision occurs

For Discussion:  Currently 2.8.1 school bus includes in the definition, "a motor vehicle used for the transportation of any school pupil at or below the 12th-grade level to or from a public or private school or school-related activity."

Are there age implications of "pupil" definitions when associated with pre-K, head start, daycare versus traditional K-12 designation of "pupil?"
