Montrose County School District, Montrose, Colo.
Montrose County School District (MCSD) in Colorado is focused on eliminating bullying in their community. Working closely together, First Student and MCSD implemented a bus behavior program to increase awareness and better manage the serious issue of bullying on the bus.
According to the Department of Justice, 1 in 4 children, ages 12 to 18 say they have been a victim of bullying. At First Student, everything we do is focused on providing your students with the best start and finish to the school day. So we set out to find solutions to bullying and other issues that can compromise student safety onboard our buses.
