Student Transportation Limits
Students living more than four miles from their designated school attendance centers shall be entitled to transportation to and from their attendance center at the expense of the school district. Students living less than four miles from their designated attendance center and students who receive a boundary exception to attend a school other than their designated attendance center are not entitled to school district provided transportation.
Parents of students who live where transportation by bus is impracticable or unavailable may be required to furnish transportation to and from the designated attendance center at the expense of the school district. Those parents who transport their children at the expense of the school district shall be reimbursed in accordance with state statute.
A student may be required, at the board’s discretion, to meet a school vehicle without reimbursement up to three-fourths of a mile. The board may require the parent to transport their children up to two miles to connect with school bus vehicles at the expense of the school district when conditions deem it advisable. It shall be within the discretion of the board to determine such conditions.
