On Friday afternoon, a number of Cohoes students exited a CDTA bus before reaching their stops while the driver addressed a disciplinary issue.
District leaders are reviewing footage from the incident.
“The safety of our students is always a top priority,” said Superintendent Jennifer Spring. “We’re working with CDTA officials in order to take appropriate action and prevent incidents like this from occurring in the future.”
The district is in its second year of a collaborative program with CDTA that makes all students in grades 6-12 eligible to ride the bus free of charge to and from school.
Students who ride the bus are expected to abide by CDTA’s safety rules and guidelines and the district’s Code of Conduct. Drivers are instructed to report violations to their supervisors at CDTA, who will contact district officials to address any issues.
