STUDENT TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
The RSU #11 Board will provide transportation for all students living beyond a reasonable distance from their school or from a scheduled bus stop as the Board has determined.
Exceptions to the above distance shall be made for the following reasons only:
Exceptions to established walking distances may be made for students with disabilities as required by their IEP. Exceptions may also be made to accommodate a student’s need for transportation with written documentation for the student’s physician.
B. PK-Kindergarten Students
PK-Kindergarten bus service will include pick-up and delivery to the home, providing a suitable bus turn is available.
C. Hazardous Walking Conditions
Hazardous walking conditions shall be defined as those which would place a child of a given age in a situation of greater than normal or average danger.
Authorized bus stops will be located so as to load and unload students with the most safety allowed by road conditions. The distance between stops may vary according to safety factors. If possible, students will be loaded and unloaded so that it is not necessary for them to cross a main highway to reach their homes.
Requests for bus stops, inconsistent with this policy must be made in writing and submitted to the Superintendent.
