169.452 Accident and serious incident reporting.

(a) The commissioner of public safety shall adopt rules to:

(1) develop uniform definitions of a school bus accident, an incident of serious misconduct, and an incident that results in personal injury or death; and

(2) determine what type of information on school bus accidents and incidents, including criminal conduct, and bus driver dismissals for cause should be collected.

(b) The commissioner shall develop a uniform accident and incident reporting form to collect those data, including data relating to type III vehicles. In addition to the form, the department shall have an alternative method of reporting that allows school districts to use computer technology to provide the required information. School districts selected by the commissioner shall report the information required by the department using either format. A school district must not be charged for reporting forms or reporting procedures under this section. This paragraph is not subject to chapter 14.

(c) Data collected under this section shall be analyzed to help develop accident, crime, and misconduct prevention programs.
