Peaceful School Bus Program was developed by an elementary school principal and a certified trainer of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. Like OBPP, the Peaceful School Bus Program is not a curriculum or a discipline program, nor is it a training program for bus drivers. It is a whole-school strategy that is designed to decrease inappropriate behavior on buses while creating a climate of respect and cooperation. Teachers, administrators, parents, and students take part in school bus route meetings. Although first developed and implemented in an elementary school setting, the program can be adapted for use with middle school and even high-school students who can serve as mentors, role models, and teachers of younger students.
