BILL NUMBER:S883 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law and the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to disqualification of persons employed as school bus monitors and bus drivers PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To prohibit individuals who are convicted of certain offenses involving children from being school bus monitors and to prohibit individuals convicted of "Leandra's Law" violations from being school bus drivers for a period of five years. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends the Education Law by adding a new section 3635-d which defines school bus monitors as "any adult employed by a school district or a private entity to ride on a school bus for the purpose of ensuring the safety of its passengers or for monitoring the conduct of the bus passengers" and prohibits individuals who have been convicted of certain offenses involving children, sexual based offenses and drug offenses from being school bus monitors. It also requires school bus monitors to be fingerprinted to determine whether or not they have been convicted of a crime that would disqualify them from being a school bus monitor.
