Bus Stop Information


All students living within the District or who are assigned to a school in accordance with cooperative agreements and who live two (2) miles or more from their assigned schools are eligible for transportation to and from school.

How to Request a Bus Stop Change

  1. Contact your student's school and Request an Initial/Change Bus Stop Request (School's submit via Online to Transportation)
  2. After verifying the information on the form, the school will approve or deny the request based upon School Board policy. If the request falls within the parameters of the School Board policies, it will then be forwarded to the transportation routing department.
  3. The routing department reviews the request to ensure that it meets district, state, and federal guidelines.
  4. The school is notified if the request has been approved or denied via email.
  5. The school will notify the parents of the outcome.

Transportation to Day Care Facilities

For the 2023-2024 school year, the District will adhere to School Board Policy 8600 and not route stops to any after care facility. However, there is a possibility that an established stop on an established route may be near a daycare. In this case, students, in theory, could ride that bus to the after-school program if these four conditions are met:

  1. The request is for a permanent, everyday basis.
  2. There is an established route and stop in existence that shall fulfill the request.
  3. The parent/guardian understands that requests shall be granted on a space available basis and permission may be revoked at a later date.
  4. Requests for this alternate school transportation must be submitted in writing to the principal for approval. As another alternative, all elementary schools are offering before and after school care at a uniform cost across the District.

Please contact your child’s school to sign up or learn more. Our priority is getting students to school on time so they do not miss any instructional time. We can no longer do that and provide courtesy busing. There is also no requirement that we provide courtesy busing but we do encourage and welcome after school care facilities to provide their own transportation and use our schools to pick students up.

Two mile Limit

Students who live within the 2 Mile limit from home to school are not provided transportation services as per Florida Rule 6A-3.001 (3)

A reasonable walking distance for any student who is not otherwise eligible for transportation pursuant to Section 236.083, Florida Statutes, is any distance not more than two (2) miles between the home and school or one and one-half ( 1 & 1/2 ) miles between the home and assigned bus stop. Such distance shall be measured from the closest pedestrian entry point of the property where the student resides to the closest pedestrian entry point of the assigned school building or to the assigned bus stop. The pedestrian entry point of the residence shall be where the private property meets the public right-of-way. The district shall determine the shortest pedestrian route whether or not it is accessible to motor vehicle traffic.

IDENTIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS - When a request for review is made to the District's Transportation Department concerning a condition perceived to be hazardous to students who live within the 2 mile limit and walk to school, such condition shall be inspected by a representative of the school district to see if it meets the State's requirements for Hazardous Conditions as per Florida Statute 1006.23.
