STUDENT ELIGIBILITY FOR HOME-TO-SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION (Board Policy BP 3541)Use SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
At the option of the Board, students shall be eligible for transportation service to and from school if the distance between their home and the school is beyond the minimum listed below:
 
1. For elementary school students (Grades K-6):  2 miles
2. For middle school students (Grades 6-8):  3.5 miles
 
Minimum distances from schools within which transportation will not be provided shall be measured by the shortest usable and reasonable route from the residence of the student to the nearest point on the boundary of the school campus.
 
Should the routing of a bus over a route to give the best service to the greatest number of students in a reasonable amount of time demand it, some students, depending on grade level, may be expected to go up to two miles in order to get to a bus stop.
 
Students who attend a school outside their attendance area may be eligible for transportation services in accordance with Board policy.

SCHOOL BUS SAFETY DRILLSUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
The Transportation Department will complete its mandated safety instruction drills within the first 30 days of school.  This requires that every student riding a bus to and from school receive safety instructions concerning where emergency equipment is located and how to safely evacuate the bus in the event of a fire or accident. 
 
Bus drivers cover the expected behavior of students while waiting for the bus to arrive in the morning and while riding the bus.  Bus drivers also cover walking safely to and from the bus stop.  After the rules are discussed, every student must exit the bus using the emergency exit (they jump out with help from transportation staff standing outside to make sure they do it correctly during the drill).  A full bus with 80 passengers can evacuate and move to a safe location within one minute. 
 
We all hope and pray that we never need to evacuate a bus under real conditions, but feel confident our students have the knowledge and skills necessary.
