We provide transportation to District students in any grade level who live more than one mile from their school of attendance. The shortest, safest, and most convenient walking path shall measure distance from school. Students with a disability related need specified in their IEP may be transported regardless of their distance from school.
We have established residential stops within attendance areas. We also stop at daycare/ learning centers within the attendance boundaries of the elementary schools. Daycare/ learning centers are considered residential stops. We do not stop at businesses, only residential.
All roads, to include dirt or gravel roads, must be maintained by Douglas County or General Improvement Districts, to qualify for bus service. We may end service on any road if conditions of the road could cause safety concerns for the students and drivers or cause damage to District buses. In the event hazardous conditions exist, alternate stops may be used on days that buses are unable to make regular stops. The Transportation Department will attempt to inform parents by telephone, television, radio announcements, or District website regarding the time and location of alternate stops if they are to be used.
