E.06 School Bus Drivers And Use Of Cell Phones - September 2007 Revision

All school bus drivers who transport students to and from school and on school sponsored activities for the Albuquerque Public Schools are prohibited from the following:

  1. The use of cell phones or other portable devices – even those quipped with hands-free devices - while driving a school bus with or without student passengers;
  2. The use of cell phones while supervising the loading and unloading of students.

The only exception to the use of cell phones by school bus drivers would be in the case of an extreme emergency. A cell phone may be used by school bus drivers in the case of an extreme emergency only if the school bus is stopped and secured in a safe location.
