Transportation authorization is not automatic or continuous from one school year to the next. Requests must be filed each year for each child requiring such transportation. A parent who plans to apply, or who has applied to private or parochial schools and is awaiting acceptance, should complete an application for each school the child might attend. The application(s) must be submitted no later than April 1, 2012. In this way, the district may include the cost of transporting the child in the operating budget.The policy of the Board of Education is to provide transportation to private and parochial schools no more than fifteen (15) miles from child's home.
