Bus Rider Eligibility
- Students residing over 1.5 miles from their home school are eligible for transportation.
- Eligibility for any student to ride a bus is conditional on good behavior and abiding by the bus rules and student handbook.
Bus Stops and Routing
- Buses are authorized to stop only at established stops on the bus route. Except for emergencies, the bus driver is not allowed to alter his/her established route.
- In establishing bus stops, safety is the first consideration. Stops are created at a location that allow students to wait off the main roadway for buses, if at all possible.
- If a bus route exists for your child, transportation may take up to one week to be established. If a bus stop does not exist you will be given a temporary bus stop until one can be created for you.
- Bus route information is available online at: www.baschools.org/transportation. If you are unable to retrieve your bus route information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Needs Transportation Services
- If your child has an IEP and receives transportation, you will be contacted about your route and to schedule a “meet and greet.”
