A proposal by the Abbotsford Police Department to post decals in school buses citing positive messages to students has the support of the board of education.

Students would view the signs — with messages such as “Kindness is Cool” and “Be Nicer than Necessary” – as they enter or exit the buses.

The plan is to launch the program this month and have a new message each month encouraging students to make positive choices. Based on ridership, it’s estimated the signs would have 1.5 million views over the year.
