702.02 – Student Eligibility for Bus Service

When transportation by a school bus is impracticable or where school bus service is not available, the Board may require the parents or guardians to transport their children to the school designated for attendance.   The parent or guardian will be reimbursed for such transportation as designated by statute.  Distance to school or to a bus route shall be measured on the public highway only and over the most passable and safest route as determined by the Board of Directors, starting in the roadway opposite the entrance to the school grounds or designated point on his/her route.

Pre-K-5 students living outside the boundaries of Front Street, Kelly Street, State Street, and League Road may ride the city bus.   Students living in this boundary must write a letter to the Board of Directors for special transportation for one year.  The Board of Directors will approve or disapprove each case on its merits.

City routes will be provided for grade Pre-K-5 students who live outside the designated boundaries. The administration will establish the city route subject to Board approval.
