Do I stop my car when a school bus stops in front?

I think people in general lack clarity on road rules related to school buses. Are we as motorists supposed to stop every time a school bus stops in front of us and flashes the 'stop' sign? Or can we continue driving as usual, or probably slow down or overtake if it is a two-lane or wider road? I have noticed different people doing different things. Clarity on this front by the authorities would be appreciated.
