The School Board of Miami-Dade County
Bylaws & Policies
Unless a specific policy has been amended and the date the policy was revised is noted at the bottom of that policy, the Bylaws and Policies of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools were adopted on May 11, 2011 and were in effect beginning July 1, 2011.


All school bus drivers must conduct post-trip inspections as required in the Handbook for School Bus Drivers, Aides and Operations Staff, incorporated by reference in Policy 8600. This duty cannot be delegated.

Post-trip inspections must be performed after the completion of each bus run and at the bus storage compound. Post-trip inspections shall include, but are not limited to, walking from one end of the bus to the other, checking behind and under every bus seat for students remaining on the bus.

If a driver fails to perform a post-trip inspection, and a child is left on the bus without adult supervision after the completion of a bus run, or at the bus storage compound, the driver will be dismissed.
